It was nice to visit Jurmala's turtle with my daughter, we made quest and adventure of it! For my family this turtle is the symbol of Jurmala and ot's nice to visit it again and again. It is "must see" attraction.

This turtle shows up in half of the postcards of Jurmala. Kids love it. If you are walking along the beach up to the hotel, you will find it.

Not sure how this can get so many 5 ratings. Yes nice enough but even smaller kids will get bored after a couple of minutes. Best bit is that 10m from the lovely beach and 40m from the Bay of Riga which is so nice to swim in

A cute big turtle. The kids took one look at it and ran to the beach. If it is on your way, cool. Otherwise,don't plan your trip around it.

Find this and play Pokemon Go! =) Not too much to see, but it is quite nice and big. Not worth to walk long distance because of this.

5-minute walk from Majori train station. You can not miss it on your way to the beach. Kids would love it.

This turtle is practically a must-see by now, he is that famous in Jurmala. I'm not sure why, but he is. Still, a fun sculpture, especially for kids.
