Ventspils (Latvia) Vacation Travel Video Guide
Travel video about destination Ventspils in Latvia.
Ventspils is located on the Black Sea in the north of Latvia’s west coast and since the thirteenth century has been a city of sailors. From the fourteenth to the sixteenth centuries it was member of the German Hanse and in the middle of the seventeenth century a shipyard was built for warships and merchant ships, which led to the prosperity of the city. On the banks of the Venta River is the only castle of the Order Of The Princedom Of Kurzeme, built by the Livonian Order at the end of the thirteenth century. The harbour has been well-developed and boasts a long history, from the Wenden Tribe and the Crusaders, right up to the present day. A trip around the harbour highlights the fact that Ventspils is the most important port in Latvia and from where oil from Siberia is loaded as well as chemical products and also wood and fish. After the Northern War and a devastating plague, the city lay in ruins and the harbour, unused. However, following the extension of the harbour at the end of the nineteenth century, life returned. When, in 1904, a rail link was opened to Moscow and Rybinsk, the harbour became important once again. In this region, people have always lived by the sea and the ice-free harbour gave rise to Ventspils’ deserved prosperity.

Metal detecting Latvia - Gorgeous Ventspils Beach
In the summer of 2016 I continued my journey from Pärnu, Estonia to the port city of Ventpils, on the northwestern coast of Latvia, which has in recent years become a quite favored holiday destination by many visitors from neighboring countries and elsewhere. In addition to the clean and historic small town, there are tens of kilometers fine sandy beaches in and around the city, which are ideal for outdoors, swimming, fishing and, of course, metal detecting.
First I headed to the city beach. There I accidentally met another detectorist, a Lithuanian tourist who had a heavy looking Soviet-type detector. We didn’t have a common language, so the discussion was short. However, I understood that he hadn’t found anything exciting on the beach.
On this trip I also wanted to test my new scoop, which I had made using electric conduit, bailer and cable ties. It can be used without bending down and since it’s all plastic, it doesn’t cause unnecessary beeps on the detector.
I was amazed at how clean and neat the Latvian beaches were. At some point, I even thought the detector was not working correctly, since the beeps were so few, even around the benches and trash bins, which are typically full of bottle caps and aluminum wraps. I tried different places on the beach and nearby dunes, such as beach volleyball courts, but beside few 80s Soviet coins, I didn’t find anything worth mentioning.
After visiting the city beach, I went to another place about 30km south of Ventspils. The same cleanliness immediately caught my eye, and the results of couple of hour detecting were pretty much the same than in the city. Perhaps part of the reason is that the coastline of Latvia, like in the rest of the Baltic states, have opened up to the public only after the collapse of the Soviet Union. During the Soviet era, the entire coastline of the Baltic Sea was part of the closed border zone, which was carefully guarded by the Soviet Union to stop their own citizens fleeing the country.
As shown in these aerial photographs, the Latvian beaches are worth a visit even without great findings. If you love and value the sun, peace and tranquility, you will surely find your own comfortable cove, where you can spend a relaxing summer day with or without the detector.
Thanks for joining me and see you next time!
