Skrunda Open-Air Stage and Park

I just love Skrunda, like I have dedicated a lot of posts to this lovely small Latvian town in Western Latvia. So today is no exception - meet another tourist attraction in this marvelous town - Open air stage and park. You will just love this place. Skrunda park with an open-air stage and the viewing platform. The park is developed on top of the Skrunda castle mound and features four public art objects made by wood carver Ģirts Burvis – seats of the first Couronian kings Ērmanis Pilāts,...

Dzintari Concert Hall

Dzintari concert hall is popular throughout Latvia as a place where concerts and other events are held, where outstanding artists have been performing for almost for 70 summers now. I discovered this place by accident during my cycling Jūrmala ride. I stopped mine vehicle in front of this place just to rest, and decided to photograph this venue site as well. Here is what I got: Water fountain in front of Dzintari Concert Hall Entrance gates at Dzintari Concert Hall Dzintari...

Skrunda Cultural Center

Right, I just made this name - Skrunda Cultural Center what is a direct translation from Latvian Skrundas Kultūras Centrs. I wouldn't probably mention this place on my blog, but since lately I have been travelling around Skrunda a lot, I decided why not?! Another reason I'm listing this place here - you can get a free high-speed Wi-Fi internet here (at least I managed to get some). Seriously speaking - Skrunda Cultural Center is a great place where locals gather to participate in different...

Tbilisi Hippodrome Near Lisi Lake (Jockey Club)

After a longer break of my cycling advetures, on a lovely Saturday morning we took our bikes and headed to Lisi Lake. Turned out that just a few hundred meters away from Lisi Lake there is located a place called 'Tbilisi Hippodrom LTD' - At start I was kinda suspicious, because only one for me known Hippodrome in Tbilisi (now we should call it a former hippodrome) is located along the Vake-Saburtalo road. I'm not an expert in this field - if owner of this place wanted to call it a hippodrome...

Kopala Bowling Review in Tskneti

Kopala Bowling is a bowling centre located in suburbs of Tbilisi, mountainous village Tskneti. This is one of the few places in Tbilisi where to play bowling.
