Latvian Ethnographic Open Air Museum
Long time ago in 1924 it was decided to create an Open Air Museum. The plan was to relocated building from the 4 regions of Latvia in one place (Vidzeme, Zemgale, Latgale and Kurzeme). Museum was opened for visitors in 1932 with only 6 buildings to see. Nowadays there are 118 buildings starting with fisherman houses, bath house, Russian house and so on. Museum was opened before the war, but has preserved very good and no large damages were done during the World War 2. During the Summer time almost all buildings are opened for visitors and many cultural events all held here. Mind that during the winter time not all exhibition will be available, but it is still worth seeing it.
