Salaspils Concentration Camp

Salaspils Concentration Camp

People who are interested in history, especially WWII, should definitely visit Salaspils Concentration Camp, which was built by the Nazis in 1941. This place is surrounded by a lot of tragedy, including many deaths of innocent children, so visitors should prepare to be shocked. Rumbula Forest Massacre Memorial, which was established to pay tribute to all the victims of the Holocaust, is also located close to Salaspils. This day-trip is a great way to learn more about the most tragic period of humans’ history.

Volcanic Iceland Epic Trip

meet our Local Insider

2 years.


It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
