... Baltic sea. It's a quick 20 minute ride supposedly. We bought train tickets to Jurmula but didn't realize the stop was Majori. I looked at Google maps on my phone and Jurmula was much farther down the line. The beach is a summer haven for the city folk but it's a 5-10 mile beach. We got out at a ****** residential district that gave us a good feeling of what it was like to live under the Soviet days - ugly, crumbling high ...
