Venta Waterfall, Kuldiga

4.4
#2 of 39 in Things to do in Kurzeme Region
In a fairytale setting surrounded by parks and villages, Venta Waterfall is the widest waterfall in Europe. Although a mere 2 m (6.6 ft) tall, the fall reaches widths of 270 m (886 ft) during rainy seasons. This official Natural Monument of Latvia is known not only for its idyllic beauty, but also for the phenomenon of jumping fish: at certain times of year fish like salmon and sturgeon swim upstream and surge over the waterfall by hurling themselves through the air.
