Kuldiga

If you enjoy the aura and charm of a medieval town, and the opportunity to participate in cultural events that you will not find anywhere else, Kuldīga is the perfect place in which to spend a romantic holiday. Kuldīga has always fascinated and attracted people, like a beautiful woman capturing one’s full attention. Painters compare it to a wonderful picture which you would love to be able to own.

Location
Kuldīga is located on the banks of the River Venta, 155km from Riga, and the historical centre of its Old Town in the ancient valley of the Venta is included in the UNESCO national list. Nature has created the district of Kuldīga not only as one of the country’s most scenic areas, but also as one of the warmest regions in Latvia. Tourists love the Riežupe Nature Park, with its mysterious Duke Jacob sand caves and the picturesque valley of the River Riežupe.

Active tourism
Kuldiga district is the perfect place for hiking, cycling, horse riding, fishing, or taking a boat trip. Kuldīga is rightly known as the Latvian town of cycling. In late May, the largest Latvian annual non-commercial cycling festival, Cycling Day and Cycling Night in Kuldiga, is held there. Hiking enthusiasts have an unprecedented opportunity to experience, see and enjoy the smell of the old narrow gauge train, while heading off on for the adventure hike, Lasās malā Bānis nāk! (Make way for the train!), which travels between Kuldīga and Alsunga.

Culture
Cultural enthusiasts will enjoy an unprecedented offering of original events, starting with the spring flood show, ‘Fish Fly in Kuldīga’, which takes place in April and is followed by the Midsummer Naked Run across the Venta Bridge. The River Alekšupīte Carnival and the run during the town’s festival, ‘Feast in Kuldiga’, are equally romantic. In August, there is the music festival, ‘Live Fest‘, which brings together world famous artists. The historical aura of Duke Jacob’s Fair in October will add to your wonderful experience, and the end of the year in Kuldīga is celebrated by the Winter Festival, ‘Believe in the Miracle’, which takes places in December.
