It is the right time to come
over to Tukums!

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.
