One of the less known waterfalls is the small Veldze Waterfall near Kuldiga Town.
This waterfall has formed on the Middle Devonian dolostone of Pļaviņas Stage. Close nearby are ruins of a lime kiln and there is a possibility that this waterfall has been transformed by human activity while mining the dolostone.
Veldze Waterfall is rather unsightly. During the summer the stream almost stops and, as the river is rather polluted by agricultural runoff, the exposed area around the falls might be covered with organic slime (meh!). When the water is high, the small step almost disappears.
