Why "Latvian Venice"?
Favorite thing: Despite of Kuldiga’s main river is Venta, it has some channels around, like in Venice or Amsterdam. Of course, these are different ones, much more narrow. One of these smaller streams of water is Aleksupite.
So, if you ever hear of Latvian Venice town, think about Kuldiga.
Ventas rumba, the widest waterfall in Europe.
Favorite thing: If you are in Kuldiga, don't forget to visit Ventas Rumba - the main sight in Kuldīga , a 240-meter wide natural waterfall which is possibly the widest in Europe.
The old brick bridge across the Venta built in 1874 is one of the longest its type of bridges in Europe. The bridge was built according to the road standards of the 19th century (500 feet long and 26 feet wide) so that two carriages could pass each other on it. The bridge has often been used for shooting films including “Emil’s Mischiefs”.
Kuldīga lies on the banks of the river Aleksa. This small river deserves your attention also!
About 5 km from Kuldiga you can see Riežupe sand caves - the longest underground labyrinth, open for visitors (460m)
