Riga og Jurmala

En kort flytur over Østersjøen ligger Riga, den største byen i de baltiske landene. Riga er en av byene i Europa med flest bygninger i jugendstil. Denne byggestilen dominerte sentrum fra 1800-tallet og fram til første verdenskrig.

Vecriga, det gamle Riga står på UNESCOs verdensarvsliste. Smale brosteinsgater snor seg mellom vakkert restaurerte hus innenfor festningsmurene.

Da jeg kom til Riga hadde jeg kun hørt om gamlebyen. Mist like vakre er alle Art Nouveau-husene som ligger langs brede boulevarder i den mest velstående delen av sentrum.

Elven Daugava snor seg gjennom byen og er omkranset av parker. Her kan man leie pedalbåter eller gå en tur på hengelåsbroen hvor forelskede par henger opp hengelåser med et troskapsløfte.

En halvtimes kjøring fra Riga liggger badebyen Jurmala som har over 100 års tradisjon som spa-ressort. De fint restaurerte villaene og badehotellene bærer bud om en gammel badeby som har vært lekegrind for europeiske aristokrater.

Stranden er hvit og uendelig og det er mange gode restauranter i den livlige men stemningsfulle hovedgaten. Badetemperaturen er omtrent den samme som i Norge. I Jurmala finnes også Nord-Europas største badeland.

Prøv en annerledes badeferie til sommeren. Syd Europa er best på våren eller høsten. En fin kombinasjon er badeferie i Jurmala etterfulgt av noen dager med storbyferie i Riga.
