  • This Globe is a historic environmental object, locally known as "Jurmalas Globus", with a diameter of two meters, is considered to be the largest globe in Latvia. Globus is located at the junction of Jurmala, Turaida and Jomas streets, near Dzintari Concert Hall. The object dedicated to the environment was set up in the early 1970's, and in the perception of many visitors to the city, the sculpture is a symbol of this time, as evidenced by the territories of the countries marked on the globe map. The map of the circle of light also includes Jurmala's twin cities since the 70's. In 2003, reconstruction was carried out. In 2016, by the order of Jurmala City Council, the certified metallic artist Ainārs Sils (SIA Sils un Sili) from Jaunpiebalga renovated the Globus. The cost of the reconstruction was covered by the ABLV Charitable Foundation. In order to protect the globular supporting structure from the influence of the external environment, galvanized steel was used. Time affected part of the the copper finishing panels and so those were restored, part of them were rebuilt using historic copper treatment in the screening technique and located on the newly created equator, meridians, and globular bullet carrier structures. Likewise, motion and light mechanisms have been restored.
