To tell the truth - nothing special. Just paused for a minute, spin it, take a photo and go to the park. I don't think that it is must-see attraction

The large globe is much of a landmark at the end of the pedestrian street. I like globes, and particularly this one, which you can rotate.

Jurmala Globe is a good meeting point and a must place for a holiday photo. Point your home location with a finger to make your photo even better! :-)

The globe is located at the end of Jomas Street. Many tourists stop by it to have their photo taken.

It was not so impressive as expected before. Just the big ball near the walking way. Just good to know that it is there but not nothing special.

On the side of the street. Personally, I would say it is more a landmark it is especially so if you are first time there.
