Sun lives in Dobele

Welcome to Dobele and vicinity!

For more than 760 years, Dobele has been flourishing on the banks of the Bērze River. We say with pride - the Sun lives in Dobele, as our provincial town enjoys most sunny days in Latvia. Dobele is also often called the Metropolis of Lilacs, as it has one of the largest lilac-tree gardens in Europe. In winter, the town turns into a meeting place for the Giant Dobele Snowmen.
