A very small point in a very small country.

Ventspils is a very small point on the map, but it's amazing place for having fun and a good rest. Enjoy!!!

Ventspils, located in the north-west of Latvia some 189 kilometres from Riga, is an up-to-date, modern European city with a wide range of available entertainment and tourist sights.
This city is at mouth of the Venta River that flows into the Baltic Sea.

The first news of Ventspils can be found in a document (1263) in which it is confirmed in writing that the ports of the Kurs shall be divided between the Livonian Order and the Bishop of Kurzeme. In this document, Ventspils is mentioned as the port of Windau.
