    Akmenraga lighthouse / Akmenraga baka

    by Inguuna Updated Jan 17, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Translating directly the name of this place, it would be 'stone cape', so you can only guess if there will be stones and cape. Yes it is so, from old times the seaside is full with stones, which stand on their place, only seacoast has gone somewhere else in some places. Formerly this place was very dangerous for boats, because many times they could run on aground. Therefore in the end of 19th century here was built this red lighthouse, which hasn't survived from those times. This, almost 40 meters high lighthouse still works and is open for visitors.
    I must warn you, the way to the lighthouse is not the easiest one, if you have low BMW :)

    Utmost point

    by Inguuna Updated Jan 17, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Near to Bernati is located the utmost west point of Latvia, which also is called as Green ray, there is also a monument which shows it.
    This beach differs with everything, there are no stones and almost no shells, and it has very beautiful light sand. If you go to the sea, you can how impossible is to stand against the power of nature and sea. There is one house located very closely to the sea, and every year, the sea comes nearer.

    Jurmalciems and its sand dune

    by Inguuna Updated Jan 17, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On both sides from Jurmalciems, parallel to the sea you can see the highest sand dunes in Latvia, every with it's own name - Pusenu sand dune, Palu hill, Atrais hill, Lava hill. The highest from all sand dunes is Pusenu, it is 37 meters high and located very closely to Jurmalciems. There is a legend, which tells that in old times Pusenu houses were covered with sand and on that place grow a hill. It's very difficult to climb up, but when you reach the up, you can see fantastic panorama with hillside, trees and sea. But be careful, hill is very steep and there is no demarcation.

    Wild horses

    by Inguuna Updated Jan 17, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    More than six years in Pape meadows are living pedigree horses, which ancestors were very similar to extinct tarpans. These horses, to whom takes care World Wildlife Fund in Latvia, live only in wild, in those meadows. When you come here, you need to prepare for long walking, because from the beginning you may not see the horses, but while you're walking and looking for them the guide is telling interesting things about wild horses. Excursions may be in all seasons and only with guide.

    Wooden castle / Malkas pils

    by Inguuna Updated Jan 17, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's worth to visit this place, because it's definitely the interesting and strangest castle, which I have seen. The author, who lives not far from his piece of art, from wooden billets has made it during many years. The castle even has floors, but when I was there I saw nobody who walked into it. So you can enjoy it with eyes, but it's worth to visit it to see how wide can be imagination of one man. Down the lake there are some sculptures, which also is author's work.

    Yes, even here live ostriches. Already some years here are breeding South America's ostriches, which are very large. Before going here, you must reserve time and also you can reserve omelet from ostrich egg.
    The owner tells about birds very interesting things and you can ask your own questions, for example, if ostrich bury it's head in sand :)

    Kapsede grand stone / Kapsedes dizakmens

    by Inguuna Written Jan 17, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although Kapsede grand stone is divided in two parts, it is the largest boulder in Latvia. It is more than four meters high, and width of largest stone part is more than 16 meters.
    As many tales, this also is connected with devil, which wanted to steal a stone, but he didn't manage it, while thunder in anger divided it in two parts.

    Pape bird watching tower

    by Inguuna Updated Jan 17, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although you're not very famous ornithologist, I recommend you to visit this place, because from here you can see very beautiful panorama to the nearest lake. You need to be very patient to see water birds, which live here, I'm sure you'll see ducks, which are not rare here. To the watching tower, which is located almost on the lake, leads airing trail, and ascending the stairs you'll find information about birds, which you can try to see in the lake. In autumn here gather ornithologists, who observe and girdle through traveling birds.
