    Nature has generously awarded Jurmala with unique medicinal resources. Jurmala is a balneo-logical and a climatic resort - here you can find both healing mud, as well as a mild maritime climate combined with the pine forest air rich with phytoncides.

    Here, the subsoil hides sulfurated, bromide and sodium chloride mineral water, which has created large underground reserves of therapeutic peat, and you can find precious sapropel mud in the lakes.
