If you must choose where to go on a holiday or simply to relax from the busy rush of the city life, why not leave your heart down in Tukums town?
There is plenty to see and do, both – for the grown-ups and children. Castles and manors, churches and manors to visit and to understand history better, parks and trails to walk and learn about nature, lakes for fishing, movie-shooting location underneath the clear sky with real movie props and perhaps be lucky and participate in shooting a movie, farmer’s goods for getting to know the countryside living and treating your stomach with great-tasting treats, and more, more, more.
For bigger or smaller circles of friends, families, and also for the loners, accommodation is available, as well as saunas for keeping the fun spirits or enjoying silence. Active recreation is possible to such a crazy manner that the wind plays with your hair, when riding quads or rodeli, going on boat yacht trips. Presence of the medieval ambience is palpable when trying out your skills in use of weapons that are several centuries old. But for some urban alpinism or playing war at the paintball fields might seem very exciting? And then there is the possibility to go skiing or snowboarding during winter on the skiing hills of the area!
The places here once acquainted with you will remember forever.
So – it is the right time to come over to Tukums!
Rose Festival in Tukums!
If you have a desire to spend
time in a crowd in order to receive a festive feeling, then Tukums invites you to
visit it in the middle of the summer – July
15th – 17th.
Why? Because again, we will celebrate Rose
Festival. Here, adults and children, those who love flowers and nature as a
whole, who loves to party and those who adore retro auto and air shows, will
definitely find something to fulfill their hearts. And as it has been already
each year, in the Tukums center, each
and every one will be able to take a part in creating the biggest rose crown
(but you must remember - take with you one or better more rose flowers). But if
you are getting ready for the festival a while before, then you can participate
in the crazy ride “Rožu vāģis”(Rose car). But if you just want to enjoy the
magic of the roses and other flowers, then you can visit special florist
exhibitions that will be created specially for the Rose Festival. But at the
same time, you can enjoy the country side, by having a
picnic in rose garden “Rozītes”,
that it is located near Tukums. The program of the festival can be viewed here.
