Winter in Saulkrasti is like a girl in front of a mirror, unable to decide on her attire! In cold weather with lots of precipitation, winter puts on a thick white coat of snow, riddled with trails left by skiers and children's sleds.

In wet and damp weather, winter smells of an open fire, freshly baked bread and bathhouse whisks. In the silence of winter, one can best hear the arrival of winter solstice, Christmas and the New Year, and enjoy the offer of beauty parlours and spas after a tiresome work week.

Both young and old locals and visitors will appreciate the traditional winter events: the lighting of the Christmas tree at Sun Square, Christmas concerts at Pēterupe Church, God's Grace Church of the Roman Catholics and the Zvejniekciems Culture House, and the New Year fireworks and concert at Sun Square.

Saulkrasti (Pēterupe) Lutheran Church

Pēterupe Church,first built in 1641. The current building is already the fourth church in this place, built in 1856. Its altar painting "Christ at the Cross" (Golgotha) was done by Josep Miller in 1856, using his teacher Peter von Cornelius's altar painting at the Ludwigskirche in Munich as an example. The church was consecrated in 1864 and a year later a Martin organ with 8 registers was set up there, extended to 14 registers in 1903. Unfortunately, the organ was destroyed during World War II.

Roman Catholic Church of Divine Grace

In 1998 the Roman Catholic Church of Divine Grace, able to hold 300 people, was built and consecrated next to the River Ķīšupe, close to the park and an open stage; it was a project of the architect Jānis Šrēders. The Christ in the altar painting is portrayed by the artist Ēriks Pudzēns as seen by Sister Faustina on 22 February 1931 in a Polish monastery.

Culture Club "Zvejniekciems"

It was designed by the excellent architect Marta Staņa (1913–1972) in the mid-20th century for the use of the collective farm "Zvejnieks". The architect worked in a functionalism style (the Dailes Theatre in Riga is another of her creations). The foundations of the building were laid in 1952, but due to a lack of materials it took five years to construct. When the palace was opened on 8 November 1956, it was one of the most modern buildings not only in the Riga region, but also the whole of Latvia. The central space of the building is the big hall which can hold 700 spectators.

Other buildings Marta Staņa designed in Zvejniekciems include two blocks of flats for teachers, Zvejniekciems Secondary School and a summer house for the Postaži family of artists.
