From 2003, when the leading tourism portal in Russia www.travel.ru established nominations in different tourism categories „Star Travel.ru” (Zvezda Travel.ru), that are awarded according to the questionnaires submitted by readers, the nomination “Best Baltic sea region resort” was avowed to Jūrmala. This tradition continues, and also this year the award „Best Baltic sea resort 2011” will go to Jūrmala resort city.
On march 2012 Jūrmala city council will participate in international tourism exhibition „MITT 2012” in Moscow, where representatives of Jūrmala city council will receive a prestigious prize as a Best Baltic sea resort.
