This stop was part of a National Geographic Baltic Sea trip. Our guide was great and really brought to life the every day life of people hundreds of years ago. There was a nice variety of buildings, great photo ops.

Large open air park with lots of old buildings showing different parts of Latvian culture. We walked for 2 hours and barely saw half of the park some of the buildings had people demonstrating crafts or other skills which made it more fun.

This was an optional excursion for our tour and well worth the price. This is truly a beautiful property with an insight to the early days. We had a beautiful lunch prepared locally and were able to view a wedding in the old chapel.

I like that they are organizing different events there and you can get a real taste of Latvia. There are several tipical houses from earlier times, also there is a place outside where to eat.
