Out-of-Riga Sunday: Main street in Kuldīga

The most ancient looking town in Latvia is Kuldīga. It has escaped both world wars and also Sovietization tendencies has touched it less than many other Latvian towns - when being in town's centre you can't know is there somewhere commieblocks or not. Kuldīga can boast also with beautiful nature - it's located at Venta river and right at the town there is one of the widest Europe waterfalls - Ventas rumba. Due to all these factors, Kuldīga is being widely regarded as the most beautiful small town in Latvia. I wouldn't be so cathegoric, because I think Cēsis could hold the title as well and we can't forget about Liepāja which is although raped by wars but still very beautiful in places, and also other towns. However, one thing is clear - Kuldīga can give the most authentic old town feeling in Latvia. Sometimes it feels you just have to dress people like in old times and you're back there (17th/18th Century).
