Three for the Weekend: cat-walk, open-air exhibit, Kalnciema market

Take note – story published 3 years and 2 months ago

Cold wind fit for mid-March rather than end of April has been tearing through Latvia - but don't let it scare you! Here are some events for a fun weekend.

Cat-walk in Jūrmala

While museums are closed, legendary Latvian writer Aspazija's residence in Jūrmala offers an expedition "In Cats' footsteps" (paw-steps)? Visitors are invited to walk a six-kilometer route through Majori and Dubulti neighborhoods and find eleven cats throughout the route with the help of a map.

Why cats? The writer Aspazija was famously known for her affection to the felines and owning quite a few of them (talking double-digits). 

You can find the route maps on Aspazija's residence Facebook page and Jūrmala city website.

Close-strangers: Estonia, Latvia and Krišjānis Barons

In honor of one of the most famous Latvians – Krišjānis Barons – and his contemporaries, the Ziedonis Museum invites everyone to meet Latvian and Estonian late 19th century revolutionary intelligence representatives at an open-air exhibition in Rīga, Sporta 2 square.

The joint exhibition of Latvia and Estonia “Close-Strangers: Estonia, Latvia and Krišjānis Barons” will be freely accessible to visitors, and it will give everyone the opportunity to learn something new during the walk, according to the museum representatives.

Kalnciema Market

The well-known market on Kalnciema Street 35 selling local-produced arts, clothing, crafts, street food and the like is back after a four month long suspension of street sales and fairs in Latvia due to epidemiological constraints. 

Design, crafts, and plants will be available for sale, while food producers are currently located on the premises of Āgenskalna market. Kalnciema market opening hours are Saturday, 10:00 to 16:00.
