Lapmežciems – unpronounceable but beautiful!
I can write it, I can spell it but I can’t pronounce it – Lapmežciems. Latvian words can be real tongue twisters. Now, don’t judge the place by its name. Lapmežciems is a tiny village in the Ķemeri National Park. If you don’t know where that is, get a map and look for a green patch along the Latvian coast. I’ll give you a hint – it’s really close to Jurmala.
This is where we went. Exciting, isn’t it? It only takes about an hour by bus from Riga (remember, bus tickets here are very cheap!)
So, why is this place so special? The village itself is very simple but the nature around it is absolutely stunning. Here are some pics to give you an idea.
