Things to Do in Ventspils

Ventspils Coastline
Where Blue Flag beaches meet the Baltic Sea. If you’re looking for a fun way to get out with the kids, Ventspils’ coast is a good bet. There's not just sandy dunes and clear blue water here, but slides, swings, and play areas to keep the little ones busy. Head to Southern Pier’s lighthouse to end the day with a lovely sunset!
Beach Aqua Park
As if the golden sand and pristine waters of Ventspils’ best beach weren’t enough, you’ll also discover this open-air water park on your seaside walk. And when your kids hear the shrieks of joy echoing from Beach Aqua Park’s variety of slides, they’ll want in on the fun, too! Still, even grown-ups can take advantage of the hot tubs and saunas.
Ostas Iela Promenade
If you're looking for some history and culture, the whole family will enjoy a walk on Ostas Iela Promenade. This part of Ventspils’ inner harbor includes the 13th-century Castle of the Livonian Order that now houses a museum full of prehistoric finds and medieval artifacts. Then there’s the "Cow Parade," a colorful collection of big bovine sculptures that'll definitely make for a fun family photo!
Ventspils House of Crafts
The renewed oldest school building of the Kurzeme Duchy currently hosts the House of Crafts, where the visitors can always have fun and enjoy the creative skills of Kurzeme people.

Ventspils Beach
For Liepāja, the wide stretch of dazzlingly white sand south of the Venta River is what the Louvre is for Paris – its main treasure. During the warmer months, beach bums of every ilk – from nudist to kiteboarder – line the sands to absorb the sun’s rays. Backed by a belt of dunes and a lush manicured park, the Blue Flag beach feels as pristine and well cared for as an urban beach can get.

Great for families but little to do on a cold day for others. The beach and parks are lovely. It's a very clean town with some interesting buildings. Highly recommend the Skoderkrogs restaurant just 3 minutes from Kupfernams.
