The name Jūrmala is a combination of Latvian words jūra ("sea") and mala ("edge"). Jurmala is a ravishing mixture of wooden country houses of the early twentieth century and modern hotels and villas. This is a European resort in the most beautiful area of the Gulf of Riga, the pearl of Latvia.
Moderate climate, healthful meritime air, snow-white sand and excellent ecology are the ideal conditions for a dream relaxation. Leisurely promenades in the Dzintari Park, swimming in the clear sea water, dunes and centuries-old pines, quiet conversations at mealtimes – this is Jurmala. This is the place where you want to be.
