Jurmala, Latvia, a Baltic seaside town 30-45 minutes from Riga, is a crazy packed place in summer. In Autumn, few people visit Jurmala but the water, beach and sun still beckon. Lovely multi-mile long beaches with light blond sand and crisp water under blue skies call nature lovers to bow before her. We glimpse a few dacha houses that Communist party and locals stayed at during the summers. Getting there and back is half the fun. Check out Communist-era built Jurmala train station, and enjoy the journey back to Riga across the Daugava River.
