Meteņi Masks at Open-air museum

Even though most of us might be sick and tired of masks, there are still those worn for fun and aesthetic. Latvian Ethnographic Open-air museum offers a 'Meteņi Mask Trail' and the Traditional Mask Exhibition 'Between Two Suns'.

Meteņi or Metenis is an ancient Latvian spring waiting holiday which ends on Ash Wednesday, which is followed by Lent. Meteņi is celebrated in February or early March, seven weeks before Easter.

The trail and exhibition  are open January 22 to February 21 from 10 AM to 5 PM.
