    This synagogue was built in 19th century. It is not a synagogue anymore as almost entire Jewish population was killed in WWII – the tragic moment of our history. Now it is residential house for people. It is located on Kalna street (Kalna iela). Ask for singagoga (into Latvian) if you can’t find it.

    This church was built in 18th century, but later some parts were added and its present look is from 19th century.

    From 10th till 14th century here was a Curonian wooden castle. Curonians were one of the most aggressive Baltic tribe. They participated also in Estonian and Karelian raid on Sigtuna in 1187 (most important Swedish city that time). There are many hills in Talsi. This one is called Talsu pilskalns in Latvian and it is located just near Talsu ezers (Talsi lakes).

    There are frequent bus connections to/from Riga (each hour or so; from 2.5 to 3.5 hours; about 3 Ls) and not so frequent to/from Ventspils, Kuldiga, Liepaja, Kolka and probably some other. For more information try this site: http://www.1188.lv/satiksme?sub=autobusi&lang=en.

    If you have or can find a local guide, it's fun to discover unknown corners of the countryside - like we discovered in nearby Pastende. Rent a bike or have a rowing trip, enjoy the wildlife and finish your day with a shaschlik party and a visit to the "pirts" (sauna)!
