Project „Green Heritage” partners from Latvia, Estonia and Russia for the first time jointly presented the route map in „Balttour 2014” (Latvia) and „Tourest 2014” (Estonia), but in March it will be presented to visitors of the biggest tourism Exchange „ITB Berlin” (Germany) and travel and tourism fair „MITT Moscow” (Russia).

Celebrate at Priedes Krogs (the pinetree Pub)

12. February

For centuries, pubs have had  a significant role in Latvian daily life. This has been a place for travellers to stop for a while, to have a meal or to stay for a night and find out the latest news and rumours of the neighbourhood. Here, Latvian peasants with pleasure had a mug or two of a drink after work. The stories of the funny events in the pub, both, above the table and under it, have found their reflection in Latvian songs.
