  • This open-air museum is quite easy to find, because the artificial settlement on an island in the Lake can be seen from the road. The Museum is divided into two parts. You get a card at the entrance. The more interesting part is the wooden platform on Lake on the tightly packed a number of block houses are. Over a wooden footbridge, get there and can look at century the lovingly reconstructed dwellings of the locals in the 10th. On the shores of the Lake are also the ruins of an old Castle. The so-called girl island is located from the parking lot on the right side. A peninsula on which it has built the dwellings of the locals during the stone age and bronze age. Everything designed quite interesting and worth a visit.

  • A unique place, which is very big tourist potential, but he was not used to its full extent. The location itself (on the island), the absolutely unique. Having visited here, find out how our ancestors lived during the times of the Vikings, as they had to work and protect their homes. Of course, to visit here worthwhile. Sure. And then go to Cesis, it close at all. In General, the edge of this very picturesque, interesting and helpful.
