The rich history of Jelgava, capital of the old Duchy of Curland and Semigallia

by Jorge Sanchez - 4 months ago

I traveled by bus to Jelgava, from Riga. I did not expect to find in Jelgava such a richness in history and old buildings plus palaces across the river Lielupe, something that I learnt once I was there and became admired. Most of a day I would stay there visiting everything that I could during the light time (when it became dark I would return by bus to Riga to sleep in my hostel, very satisfied for all that I had seen and learned).
