Jurmala, the pearl of Latvia, is the largest resort town in the baltic. No other place has beaches with tens of kilometres of such white, fine sand. Nowhere else do the pines on the dunes murmur so restfully. And the air is full of ozone and sea freshness. Right behind the dunes are the woonden houses so characteristic of Jurmala, with their finely divided window, verandas and rooftop structures. Beside them are contemporary buildings, blending admirably into the landscape.
It is about 40 minutes from the capital city of Latvia, Riga. You can take a taxi from the airport or train.
