Place of Interest: Talsi

Talsi (Latvian), Talsen (German), Талси (Russian)

Talsi is both a city and a district in northern Kurzeme, known for its historic beauty. There are numerous natural parks, cherry and apple orchards, lakes, hills and cobblestone streets. Talsi is one of the oldest cities in Kurzeme, the ancient Curonians built forts here.

This is the birthplace of Berta Helene Ozols-Ozolins, and possibly the place of origin for my Ozolins ancestors.
