Route by Melluži cultural center

F
rom 1827, Melluzi developed as bathing-place with warm baths when there well-house was built. Unlike other bathing-places here the dance music was closer to people by the brass band. Like Majori once, this was Baron von Fircks property what at that time was known as Karlsbad. “Jurmala Gold” or famous strawberries have come directly from this part of Jurmala. There were strawberry gardens with highly productive and high-quality strawberries. Strawberry plants were imported from France. Later strawberries were delivered not only to Riga but also to St. Petersburg. While the word Melluzi probably comes from the word “huckleberry” (mellene) what in woods were very many. The oldest name for Melluzi was given in 1918. Melluzi and Asari was relatively quiet and peaceful place for average wealthy city dwellers, cultural workers and teachers for renting a summer home.
