Take note – story published 2 years ago

Unbelievably, 2021 is already two months in. Though everyone's already well aware that no crowded or indoor events can take place, it doesn't mean  there's nothing to do. Take a look at the weekend tips!

Photo Hunt with 'Lunch Elements'

Make the most of your Saturday with a walk, a hunt, and a lunch in Āgenskalns. February 20, starting 10:00, you can participate in a photo-orienteering event, with the main task of finding objects in the vicinity. Afterwards,  you can treat yourself to hot soup, a fresh burger and other snacks (take-away only).

Individuals, teams of two, or up to five people from one household can participate. Start and finish is on Baložu Street 12, Āgenskalns.

Latvian Jazz concert 'Born in Latvia'

Saturday, February 20, at 22:00, watch a Latvian jazz concert live from the Dzintari concert hall on the TV channel Re:TV.

Musicians Beāte Zviedre (soprano), Jānis Rubiks (bass), Janis Bērziņš (guitar), Rūdolfs Dankfelds (drums) and Artjoms Sarvi (piano) have based the program on Latvian classic and contemporary poetry. The music promises to weave together European jazz tunes, a Nordic hint, an energic harmony and a free improvisation.

Meteņi in  Turaida 

Meteņi or Metenis is an ancient Latvian spring waiting holiday that ends on Ash Wednesday. Though  Ash Wednesday has already passed, an  open-air exhibit on the celebration is available in Turaida from February 6 to 28.

Individually or within one household, visitors are invited to learn about the traditions of Meteņi, actively playing some of them in Turaida. You will have the opportunity to chase away moles, get a recipe for a traditional food – slokatnis, learn the song and dance of Meteņi, ride down the hill and jump in the big heaps of snow, as well as enjoy the pies or sandwiches brought with you while watching the snowy landscape.

More information is available on Turaida Museum Reserve website.
