Burtnieks cliff

Until 1929 the wawes of the lake washed at the foot of this sandstone cliff at the bank of Burtnieks lake. The level of the lake was lowered per 1 m then and the formation of cliff stopped. Small, bush covered cliff can be seen today as well but it hardly compares to its own beauty 100 years ago. Nowadays Burtnieks lake is the only natural lake in Latvia having cliff at its banks.
