Bolderaja – Jurmala (Bumbu kalnins – Priedaine)
They say that once in ancient times a large dragon flew over this place and laid an egg, which turned into a large stone, in which a golden egg is hidden. We’ll try to find this stone.
We will discover – the Bumbu hill (there is an observation tower on it), the secret entrance to the bunker, the excavation sites, the monument to Peteris Kupsha, the dunes, and I, Mikelis, will tell you many interesting stories about these places.
The meeting point is at the bus stop “Bumbu kalniņš” (bus route nr.36). We will finish the hike in Priedaine.
It is convenient to park your car in the area of the Imanta railway station. From Priedaine to Imanta you can go by train.
There are no special requirements for clothing. An umbrella or raincoat, spare shoes or socks may come in handy – we will go by different paths. The dunes in some places are very sandy, often with many flooded areas or large puddles.
Bring snacks and drinks, binoculars and notepads with you. A break is planned on the bank of Lielupe.
There are no facilities and shops along the way.
