Things to Do

New Town (Jaunpilsēta)

Busy, bountifully blooming, rich with refreshing parks and fountains – that is the New Town of Ventspils!

Owing thanks to the rapid development of the harbour at the beginning of the 20th century, the so-called New Town (Jaunpilsēta) started forming to the South from the current Old Town, in the suburban fields and pastures. The narrow streets were replaced by a network of regular and wider streets. Unlike the Old Town, where the German residents of Ventspils had settled, the New Town provided with housing to the Latvian farmers coming from the rural territories of Kurzeme, for whom the growing town gave job and food. Up until the second half of the 20th century, many streets of the New Town had not been paved and there were open roadside ditches.
