Venta Waterfall, Kuldiga
(4.4/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • While the waterfall doesn't look that spectacular as the widest in Europe it's great fun crossing it on foot or swimming in the river beneath. The surroundings are quite nice as well.
