Courland, or Kurzeme is one of the historical and cultural regions in western Latvia. The largest city is Liepāja, the third largest city in Latvia. The regions of Semigallia and Selonia are sometimes considered as part of Courland as they were formerly held by the same duke.
The ports of Ventspils and Liepāja are the largest cities in Kurzeme.
Liepaja is famous for its rich cultural scene (pop-rock music in particular) and its unique Military Port territory, once a major Soviet war machine component, now a major tourist attraction (nerves of steel in some spots preferred).
Ventspils, a major Latvian port, has become well-known for its immaculate, refined cityscape and wide variety of tourist attractions, and plenty of sports and entertainment options year-round.
Enjoy the charming “choo-choo” train, or sunbathe on the Blue flag-certified beach, with its beautiful dunes.
For star-gazers, Ventspils has an observatory with a modern telescope, and a state-of-the-art digital planetarium – tops in the Baltic region.
Kuldiga and its quaint Old Town in every corner has a romantic feel of days long gone by. For those seeking supreme serenity.
