The White dune

The White dune is the western end of the Bolderaja-Priedaine dune range that ends with the 15—20 m high, collapsing slope, which is constantly bathed by the Lielupe. Formed in the territory of the city of Jūrmala on the right bank of the Lielupe between Priedaine and Varnukrogs. The White dune is an asymmetric rampart-type dune with a long (100—200 m), flat north slope and a shorter (30—50 m) steep southern slope. The absolute height is 20—21 m A.S.L. Formed at the bank of the Lielupe, when it was connected to the Daugava, with the wind the big masses of sand were transferred in the inland direction.[1] Since 1991 it is a specially protected geological-geomorphological natural object of local significance with the area of 35 ha.

Jūrmala Open-air museum

The museum was founded in 1970, but was opened for the visitors in 1979. The museum uses the coastal fisherman farm of the 19th century  with the peculiar buildings– residential house, coach-house with the barn, net barn, fish smokery, bath-house and other buildings. The buildings were brought to the museum from various fishermen villages of Jūrmala. You can view the collection of anchors and fishing boats in the museum, and in the twisting rope workshop – the biggest collection of ropes in Latvia.

Jūrmala railway bridge over the Lielupe

Railway metal bridge over the Lielupe in the railway line Tornkalns-Tukums 2. Built in 1877. In the war times in 1917 and 1944 was  blown. Has been restored after the war. The bridge length is 303.6 meters.

Ragakapa nature park

Ragakapa is a typical  mass formed by the wind and is one of the highest dunes in Latvia – 18. 2 m. As a result of the wind activities Ragakapa has been transformed into a 800 m long and 100 m wide dune rampart. There are plenty of very old pine trees in the nature park, aged over 340 years, and rare plant and bird species. Four separate paths form the path of the nature park – the Natural view path, the Insects path, the Pine trees path and the Plants path. The paths are equipped with the viewing platforms, stairs, benches, information signs and displays.
