To find a natural waterfall in lowland country is really an experience. The river views are gorgeous as is Kuldiga town with its miniature “Venice” and beautifully restored old town. True gem of Latvia!

Very impressive, i would love to visit it on summer when the water is warm, so it would be possible to walk a bit in the water. Overall the view is very beautiful itself

We were in the area, and decided to stop in. There is a nice park, with some chainsaw wood sculptures and the remains of some 19th century canal construction. It would be a nice place for a picnic. It was pleasant and quit. Now I can say that I have seen the widest waterfall in Europe!

On our most recent visit, my husband, 4-year old son and I made our way down to the river side and took a walk across the waterfall itself. I have to say these are the most beautiful photos from our whole trip.

Beautiful river and waterfall. Some might be disappointed of the height of the waterfall. On the opposite side of the waterfall is very nice bridge. To get to the waterfall we used stairs. It is also possible to walk around the bank of the river. There is tiny beach and I think there was volleyball net. I like Venta waterfall!

It might not be the highest waterfall, but in Europe it is the widest. We go there everytime we are in Kuldiga (which is 2 to 3 times a year). If the water is low you can walk along the top of the waterfall across the river. The nicest view is from the castle park. On the opposite side you... More

... but what else can you do in Kuldiga? Of course, this waterfall is the main highlight in this town and therefore it is important to see it.

This waterfall was just a part of my visit to my girlfriends home town of Kuldiga. It is a very nice sight and the Old Bridge which is just a heads turn to the left looks great at night all lit up. We were there for the Kuldiga Festival weekend in July 13. Lots of people walk across the waterfall... More

Flying fish is something unreal. Lot of forel fish shining on sun, jumping before the waterfall. Jumping out on rocks. You can look at this perfomance for hours. With admiration and with grief.
