„City of Tomorrow”

We have set ambitious goals and learnt from world’s best practice, acting out our skills and knowledge in the development of the city.

Inhabitants of Ventspils are used to perfection. If something goes wrong, they immediately notice and try to fix it. You can get more information and earn local money “Venti” HERE.
