Three for the Weekend: Music, photography, flying fish

Music, photography and watching flying fish are among this weekend's things to do and see in Latvia.

A look at the lives of visually impaired people

During the off-year of the Riga Photography Biennale, it still manages to produce a number of objects of interest.

On April 6 Gunta Podiņa’s solo exhibition We are not invisible was opened at the Latvian Museum of Photography on Marstalu Street 8 in Rīga.

The exhibition "brings to our attention various problems encountered by people with visual impairments and depicts their daily lives", says its description.

Beautiful melodies at the National Library

While on Saturday the talented Sniedze Prauliņa will perform the National Library of Latvia at 5 p.m.

She'll be presenting her newest album, Inkrustācijas, part of which you can hear here.

Entrance is free.

Trout watching in Kuldīga

Come spring, fish in Latvia have started flying again, sending people to the Venta river to try to get a glimpse of the aquatic life.

If you decide to join the crowds and "Marvel at the athleticism of fish jumping up the Ventas rumba waterfall during spawning season every spring," (as described by Latvia's official tourism website) don't miss out on Kuldiga's myriad other attractions which have earned it the epithet "Latvia's Venice" among people with particularly vivid imaginations.
