Kuldīga

Located in the western part of Latvia, about 150 km southwest of Riga, Kuldīga is a picturesque small town on the Venta River with a well preserved historical center.

The historical center of Kuldīga is a cultural monument of national importance.

The 17-18th century historical center is still rich in traditional wooden buildings, making up narrow streets. Kuldīga’s ancient brick bridge across the river Venta, which was built in 1874, is one of the longest brick bridges in Europe, constructed according to the standards of the 19th century. Kuldīga is also fa­mous for its waterfall outside the town; the 249 m wide Ventas Rumba is the widest natural waterfall in Europe.

Kuldīga’s old town, along with town’s 19th cen­tury red brick bridge across the River Venta, was placed on UNESCO’s World Heritage Tentative List in 2005.
