Information Availability About Būšnieku Lake’s Nature Trail Improved
Tuesday, 26. February — Thursday, 26. September. Nature trail of Būšnieku Lake

A wide range of recreation offers is available for active recreation enthusiasts in Ventspils – one of the most favourite active recreation places is nature trail of Būšnieku Lake. In order to implement information availability about the nature trail and its tourist attractions, it is possible to listen information about the nature trail as an audio on smart devices with the help of QR code.

Within the framework of the UniGreen project, Kurzeme Planning Region has recorded 20 Kurzeme nature trail audio files and created their QR (quick response) codes, including in it Ventspils Būšnieku Lake’s nature trail as well. To scan this code, there must be a QR code scanner application installed on the smart device, with this application, for example, it is possible to scan the code on a smart phone and enthusiasts of nature trails can listen information about the trail and its tourist attractions, length and other valuable information in Latvian and English languages.

The local government of Ventspils in cooperation with Kurzeme Planning Region set up the QR codes by the information stands at Būšnieku Lake’s nature trail. It is very easy and fast to receive information with the QR code, and it serves as a wonderful information source for people with visual impairment and children.

We invite to enjoy nature’s beauty by walking along the nature trail of Būšnieku Lake, spending a wonderful time with family and taking the 8 km route around Būšnieku Lake. Active lifestyle supporters will be happy about the developed health trail with 10 gym stands for all age groups. For ornithology enthusiasts there is a new pedestrian pathway built with a viewing platform, on which there are installed benches for rest and information stands about 35 bird species observed at the lake, these species gather exactly on the southwest side of Būšnieku Lake during nesting time.
