Jurmala, Seaside the Latvian Way.
Not far from Riga is the coastal city of Jurmala, it’s 25km or a short 30 minute train ride away. The city of Jūrmala actually consists of a string of small resorts, including Majori which I visited on my trip to Riga a couple of weeks ago.
It was a fascinating place, full of beautiful buildings of all different styles. Some very modern like the photo to the left. As well as the many wooden buildings Jurmala is known for. They were built during the 19th century and the start of the 20th century. Some beautiful restored and some barely standing. All next to one another. It was amazing to see all the styles side by side. I couldn’t stop taking photos. Here are a few of my favourites.
