The Kolka Livonian Meeting House
The Kolka Livonian Meeting House is a remarkable place on the Kurzeme shore where the local government and public organisations work together to introduce the Livonian heritage to both residents and visitors, offering an insight into the culture, traditional activities, language and cultural heritage of North Kurzeme Livonians. The house is designed as a multifunctional centre, accommodating museum assets (in exhibitions, and displays), a tourist information centre and a non-formal education/self-development centre under one roof. With the help of local NGOs and the community, the House is filled with both informative and material content, making it an interesting and unique place to visit.
