  • PRIVATE TOUR IN KULDIGA: charming streets, live history and coffee

Kuldiga should be on the ‘must see’ list for everyone! It is the most romantic town in Latvia where you can get lost wandering around beautiful cobblestone streets and enjoying the breath of the 17th – 18th century building style. Kuldiga has been once the center of the Duchy of Courland and has preserved its spirit. The city center with the widest waterfall of Europe is so impressive that even fish start to fly! No joking, in the spring vimbas swim against the current across the waterfall and it looks like they are flying.
