The Ethnographic Open-Air Museum of Latvia

When entering the tiny Latvia of the former times that hides unobtrusively behind the pine forest at Lake Jugla, don’t strive to perceive it as a reality for it was a reality only to those who have gone long time ago. But the objects, structures, and households still continue to exist. You, a visitor and a stranger will be rewarded with the intimacy of these treasures of our predecessors for a while. This feeling, line any reminiscence of contemporary man, may be vague, imperfect or too subjective though nursed by many and winnowed by time.
