Do you still remember the boring excursions from your childhood - rushing from one point of interest to the other, getting lost among the year numbers and not really being there? Well, we do remember! Keeping that in mind, we have created an orienteering route - a walk through Salacgriva - that will not only let you see the most interesting objects of the town, but ask you to be witty while finding answers to the questions in each of these places.
Ainaži is a charming seaside town with a long history, which permeates the proximity to the sea, seafaring and the radiance that they bring. Many historic buildings with special stories about each of them. The places where a pub has been, alcohol smugglers have lived and our own Romeo and Juliet story has taken place will be shown to you during a special excursion that will be lead by the local Ambassador of Ainaži city.
Border cities have a special charm. The feeling behind it - knowing that it takes one more step to find yourelfe in a different country.
During the Soviet period, locals from Ainaži crossed the border regularly - they were heading 10 m into Estonia to the shop of Ikla to buy... Sugar! Yes, as it turns out, it was considerably cheaper there! Today, such trip "abroad" can be performed by you, but you do not have to buy sugar - why not replace it with ice cream?
You are able to see and count most of the birds in the Randu meadows - a trail and a bird watching tower is waiting for you!
