Jurmala means seaside in Latvian language. How self-explanatory, right? Anyone who is in Riga or in any other part of Latvia should make time to go to Jurmala. It is only 30 minutes away from Riga and a perfect destination to get to know the Latvian local style of vacationing.
If you are in Latvia, you definitely need to visit Sigulda. Just one hour drive away from the capital city, Riga, you can arrive in Sigulda, and spend a beautiful day in that part of Gauja National Park. Sigulda is also called Little Switzerland, because of the sandstone rocks and caves in the area.
“I knew Riga was beautiful but I didn’t know it was this beautiful.” These were my thoughts just after 3 hours in the Old Town of Riga. The capital city of Latvia is such a beautiful neat city which should be part of any Europe itinerary.
The Little Mermaid was my personal motivation to visit Copenhagen. The fairy tale of Hans Christian Andersen accompanied my childhood and now it was time to visit this city where the story started.x
It wouldn’t be wrong to name East London as the most creative area of the city. The neighbourhoods from Spitalfields to Shoreditch is full of street art.
