Great news! The Ventspils Tourism Information Centre (TIC) offers new tourism information materials – tourism maps and magazines, the purpose of which is to present the city’s news, popular attractions and events on a yearly basis.
2023. The 2023 tourism magazine “Ventspils – a family- and leisure-friendly city” is available in the new design and with a different layout of information, it includes information about tourism opportunities in the city of Ventspils.
The magazine is published in Latvian, Russian, English, Lithuanian and Estonian. Unlike the magazine – on tourist maps the information is placed in a format that is more convenient for travelers, translated into Russian, English and Lithuanian.
The publication includes a brief look at the city’s history, active recreation, nature tourism, wellness and health opportunities, cultural and entertainment offerings, and a map. The magazine’s calendar of larger events for 2023 is also available in the magazine.
Both materials contain a map of the city, which notes the most important objects, amenities, parking lots, as well as outlines the routes of cycle paths, the total length of which this year in the city has reached already 70 km.
The magazine also provides more information about the recently opened VIZIUM Science Centre, whose more than 80 interactive and educational exhibits allow you to explore science in seven galleries dedicated to technology and natural sciences. VIZIUM exhibits allow you not only to feel the power of an earthquake, get out of a virtual labyrinth, ride a roller coaster, but also get the thrill of knowledge!
Also, let’s not forget about this year’s most anticipated novelty – all-season toboggan track, with a total ride length of 580m, which will be located in the territory of the Adventure Park and ski hill “Lemberga hūte” During the ride there will be an opportunity to develop a speed of 40km/h.
Informative materials are distributed at international tourism exhibitions, events, available at the “Ventspils City Administration” TIC and various city objects: the Livonian Order Palace, the Water Adventure Park, the Adventure Park, the Ventspils Main and Pārventa Library, the House of Creativity, the Theatre House “Jūras vārti” and elsewhere. The distribution of publications is also carried out by tourism entrepreneurs at information points in Latvia and Lithuania.
