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.

Nice, but that's all - nothing impressive. Dirty surroundings. This just for cross mark purposes at yours to-do list - that you visited widest waterfall in Europe. Doesn't deserve separate trip, but could be visited on if you passing by on the road Riga-Liepaja or Saldus-Ventspils. Free parking, but some steps to access. Cafeteria nearby, WC for a fee.

Was very surprised when I saw this waterfall. Did not expect so wide and relaxing "picture" of the nature in Latvia. If you travel not far from Kuldiga (50-100km), you need to go and visit it.

Kuldiga is a great little town we visited. Was beautiful to walk around the old town. And to top it off this waterfall was stunning. Great to walk around and across. Do come.

Very good place to relax in cool waterfall water. One problem - there is no place where to leave clothes and things on the ground while relaxing in water.

If you got kurzeme this is the place where you definitely must go! Kurzeme heart and pearl. Nature, majesty, splendor. Every season something different. A great place from where to start the journey by boat. A place where to draw the rest of the daily bustle. Something beautiful and definitely a place to be proud of the whole Latvia. :)

I guess if you're in Kuldiga, this is on your list anyway. For a good reason! It is indeed the widest waterfall in Europe. Maybe the shortest too, but that doesn't make it less beautiful! It's very close to a pretty old brick bridge - you get a good view of it from the waterfall and vice versa. If you're... More

The view was not that scenic, but I would say that was more due to the time of year, not the place itself. Still, a quite cool place to go for a walk, take some pictures, dine in the nearest restaurant and go home.

People usually come here during summer, but I recommend to come during winter. It's one of the best winter scenery of the world :)
