Jurmala, Latvia

Known to be one of the favorite destinations of the wealthier Russian tourists, Jurmala is located not so far from Riga. If its beaches are not especially exceptional, even if they offer a peaceful place to wander along the Baltic sea during the low season, its long typical streets deserved to be seen. Many colorful vacation houses stand a few meters away from the coast, close to the main street, which is quite full, even during low season. 

For those who might be a little bit hungry, try the Alus Krodzins in the Jomas Iela street. A typical restaurant where you have to order directly at the counter. Fast, clean, delicious. The only thing you might want to know it the presence of their cat inside the main dining room. Very discrete, the furry pet will leave you eat in peace, laying in front of the fireplace.
