04/07/2018

Every spring there is a Flying Fish Festival in Kuldīga, a UNESCO national heritage town in West of Latvia. There is a waterfall on the river Venta, known as the Venta Rapid. It is ca 100m wide and ca 1.6 high. When fish come up the river in their spawning trip, and they jump over the waterfall flying in the air, the locals say – spring has arrived. 300 years ago the local fishermen invented a cute fishing method. They used to stand on the waterfalls and catch the flying fish in baskets. On April 28 this year, the Flying Fish Festival starts the tourism season.   The city garden will host a fish market and fish tasting event, and an entertainment programme with master classes of traditional crafts and music performances.

On 28th of April there will a festival "Flying Fish Festival in Kuldīga".
