In the 17th century, the town of Ventspils (Windau, Windawa) was known as a shipbuilding center of the Duchy of Courland, a small semi-independent state in the Baltic region that established its colonies Gambia in West Africa and Tobago in Caribbean, and even laid plans to colonise Australia. Today, Ventspils (44, 000) is an industrial town and Latvia's busiest seaport. The partly wooden building of the train station is located 2 km east from the city center, across the Venta river. Description & Photo: Summer 1999.
