Sanatoriums in Jurmala and Kemeri - SPA hotels and resorts

The Jurmala resort offers the services of several high-quality spa hotels and sanatoriums, which offer about 400 different procedures, including body diagnostics and medical services. At affordable prices.

The history of using the healing natural springs of Jurmala dates back to the 18th century, when local residents, noticing the influence of water and mud on their health, arranged baths in their homes. In the 19th century, at the behest of Russian emperors, natural springs began to be purposefully assimilated: boarding houses, hydropathic establishments, and polyclinics were built here.

Most of the sanatoriums located in Jurmala today were built during the Soviet era. The growing popularity of the Baltic mineral and mud springs was facilitated by the factor of the relative proximity of Jurmala to the central cities of the European part of Russia, primarily to Moscow and St. Petersburg. Visiting the Baltic sanatoriums turned out to be less time-consuming and safer than, say, the region of the Caucasian Mineral Waters.

Country overview

Latvia is located in the north of Europe. From the north-western part it is washed by the Baltic Sea, and from land it is adjacent to Russia, Lithuania, Estonia and Belarus. Latvia has a rich but extremely difficult history. The republic experienced ups and downs, was under the leadership of various rulers and states.

A separate conversation is about repression and the Holocaust. For the first time, Latvia became independent in 1918, but after a while it became part of the USSR, in which it was until 1990. The modern country has been a member of the EU since 2004. The small country is a hub for Eastern European destinations and a tourist center in the east of the European Union.

Latvia is influenced by the maritime and continental climatic zone. In July the air warms up to + 16º, while in January the thermometer drops to -5º. Sometimes severe frosts occur. Due to the abundant rainfall, summer is not very comfortable for tourists; it is best to come to Latvia at the end of spring.

How to get to Latvia from different CIS countries

The largest international airport of the state is located not far from Riga. Direct flights are regularly made here from Moscow and St. Petersburg. Average journey time is 2 hours. In addition, there are flights from Russia to Riga with a transfer in Vilnius or Stockholm.

An express train runs from Moscow and St. Petersburg to the capital of Latvia every day. The journey will take 17 hours. Russia is also connected with Latvia by bus service. Several times a day, buses leave from St. Petersburg and Moscow.

Residents of Ukraine from Kiev and Lvov will be able to get to Riga by train or bus. There are also regular direct flights from Boryspil airport to the center of Latvia. From Minsk and other large cities of Belarus, there are daily bus and rail flights to the Baltic state, air traffic is poorly developed.

Latvian seaside resorts

Jurmala receives thousands of tourists all year round. The seaside resort is famous for its luxury hotels, sanatoriums, spa and rehabilitation centers, pine forests, healing air, mud baths and mineral waters. We must not forget about the clean white and golden beaches awarded with the Blue Flag, various festivals that regularly take place in Jurmala.

Latvia is the heart of the Baltics: all the best is concentrated here, which this amazing land is rightfully proud of. A small country, taken into a tight semi-ring by Estonia, Lithuania, Belarus and Russia, for a long time remained for Soviet holiday-makers something like "its own country", and even today it is still full of paradoxes. The sophisticated elegance of urban architecture meets the humble charm of authentic villages. Business centers are growing in megalopolises, and centuries-old castles silently keep the secrets of the past. Nature - the coast of the Baltic Sea, lakes, forests - is restrained in a northern way, but that is why it is even more bewitching. People are tactful in a European way, but at the same time very hospitable: Latvians are already accustomed to living in a Western rhythm, but they also carefully cherish their own traditions.

There are a great many reasons to go to Latvia: wander the narrow streets of Riga, relax on the famous beaches of Jurmala, admire the luxurious temples and castles scattered throughout the country. And once again make sure: all the most interesting is often waiting in the neighborhood.

Regions and resorts of Latvia

The capital is Riga, one of the most beautiful cities not only in the Baltics, but throughout Europe. A walk through its old center is a small journey into the Middle Ages. The symbol of the city is the Dome Cathedral of 1211, remarkable not only for its eclectic facade, but also for the 25-meter organ hidden behind it. The House of the Blackheads also attracts attention - a striking example of European architecture of the 14th century. The Big and Small Guilds, which have long gathered local merchants under their roofs and rebuilt in the 19th century, also remind of the old days. At the same time, the historical center of Riga was erected - the embodiment of Art Nouveau. Ornate mansions, temples of different denominations and even the Statue of Liberty are all mixed in the quaint look of the area.

The second largest and most important city in Latvia is Daugavpils. Over the centuries, key trade routes crossed here, which means destinies, religions and traditions. It is not surprising that modern Daugavpils is an original mix of temples, museums and architectural monuments of all stripes.

The historical center of the city is nevertheless designed in the same style - Latgalian Baroque with characteristic red brick facades and an abundance of decor.

Sigulda is a relatively young city, formed in the 16-18 centuries. The reasons for its tourist popularity are picturesque nature, legendary caves and, of course, luxurious castles in the vicinity (the most famous is Turaida).

It is unforgivable to visit Latvia and not spend at least a couple of days on the coast. The main local resort is Jurmala, famous for its beaches, forests, natural parks and high-profile cultural events. Liepaja is a salty sea breeze, amber deposits and amazing landscapes. Port Ventspils is attractive for its well-groomed green areas, historical architecture and actively developing infrastructure. Look for a complete list of cities and resorts in Latvia on our page.
