the widest warterfall in Europe

295 metres - the wide of that waterfall- the longest in Europe. Very good view from the bridge which was built on 1874 and that`s the visit card of the city

I've lived here all my childhood and consider Kuldiga one of the best 1-day-visit cities. Waterfall + bridge is definitely most important tourist attractions there. I suggest you take trip to Kuldiga some sunny summer day early in the morning. Go swimming in the waterfall - it's worth it. Ask some locals for safe places to jump in or just... More

One of the main tourist attractors and place of interest for locals at the same time. In summer, when the water level is quite low, you can safely cross the river on foot while enjoying a nice view on the old brick bridge. Some people might enjoy the massive mountains of melting ice piling up at the bridge in the... More

The waterfall is located in the small town of Kuldiga. although the waterfall is not as spectacular as waterfalls in other countries. the combination with the old town and old bridge crossing the river near the waterfall makes this place one to remember. the view from the bridge is amazing and the town is a nice place for a short...

At the time we visited the waterfall there was little water but it was beautiful anyway. As the town Kuldiga as the waterfall is worth to visit. This in nicest place in Latvia for me.

Our first view of the waterfall was when we came driving in to town and when crossing the bridge, this wide panoramic view of the waterfall was just awesome. It came to us by surprise, and it is just an incredibly beautiful view, which you just would not get tired of. It was lively with people swimming or just dipping... More

Having seen Venta Rumba several times it never ceases to amaze me how magnificent it is. I have only seen it in summer when it has much less water flowing over it and would love to see it spring when the mass of water increases.
