Saldus is sometimes quiet, sometimes solitary, but always open. When guests come to visit, Saldus fills their bellies with sweets and cups with coffee. Ideas intended always come true in Saldus. The Art school is filled with children, Oskars Kalpaks’ square is filled with flowers, and basketball baskets are filled with basketballs. Saldus is filled with active people.
Saldus is not a town with only one goal. Equally important are both – locals and visitors. Both arts and sports. Both family and community. Rationally, Saldus wants to be a place, where market squares and concert seats fill up; emotionally – a place, where goals and long-cherished dreams come true.
The church and the market square are still in the centre of the town, as they have been for centuries, but the town itself has considerably grown.
Saldus can be discovered as the “sweet” town – watching the brisk activities of the local sweets producers and tasting their products; as the town of Janis Rozentāls – taking a tour to the great Latvian artist’s favourite painting locations and visiting the local church he depicted in his diploma painting; as the town of the oldest and richest in tradition rock festival in Latvia – “Saldus Saule” (“The Sun of Saldus”), listening and singing along the songs until the sunrise.
Saldus municipality offers a wide range of leisure activities for adventure seekers, nature lovers, as well as for those who enjoy creative activities or like to get acquainted with the local culture and history. And, of course, travellers will be offered delicious meals, cosy accommodation and relaxing bathhouses.
