As the Christmas draws near, on Saturday, 26 November 2022, the central Christmas tree will be lit, and Christmas lights will light up the city. The Ventspils Tourist Information Centre has prepared a walking route “Ventspils under the Christmas Lights” and invites the locals and city guests to enjoy the festive mood and take a walk through the city, discovering the wonderful light installations and twinkling Christmas trees.
The guide “Ventspils under the Christmas Lights” will lead you through the city streets twinkling with Christmas lights, allowing you to discover the most beautiful Christmas decorations marked on the map. This year’s Holiday décor additions are the “Light Drums”, which will complement the composition of illuminated music instruments on the square “Lielais laukums”, and the numbers representing the upcoming year 2023 with the respective zodiac sign of the Chinese horoscope – the rabbit. The street Annas iela, on the other hand, will be decorated with garlands containing 12 large Christmas spheres painted by the students of Ventspils School of Arts. The proposed route also includes 9 decorated Christmas trees.
On the weekend starting on 26 November and during the Christmas holidays, the “Ventspils Train” will run on a special Christmas route with the usual starting point at Kuldīgas iela, near the Concert Hall “Latvija”. Follow the train schedule at visitventspils.com.
May you have a wonderful and merry Christmas time!
