About
This is one of the most well-known Kemeri resort objects already since the 20th century. The arbour was built near the springs that was already the sixth sulphur springs discovered at the end of the 19th century in Kemeri. Currently, they count for more than twenty. The Pavilion has not changed its appearance significantly, but the sculpture of lizard was created only in 1949 (sculptor Juris Bajars). At the beginning of the 20th century, the springs were decorated by a sculptural group – a boy on a dolphin, that was destroyed during World War I. In the interwar period, the springs ran from the open mouth of the dolphin that was the sole preserved part of the sculpture.

Legendary place although far from Riga ~ 42 km Legendary and medically proved spring with mineral water. Preferably use it externally as replent of mosquito, treatment of mosquito bites. Smells very specific but really helps. According to high mineralization internal use was been possible under medical supervising. Park around Spring is beautiful.

Perhaps because I went to Kemeri in September, there were hardly any other tourists in the area, and only one other person near the spring. It's quite a small spring, definitely smells of sulphur and runs into a small stream. I didn't taste the water.
