The Jāņkalni Folklore Path
The path is approximately 1.5 km long. We offer a walk through the map of Latvia – a maze consisting of 19 ethnographic districts. A knowledgeable guide will provide extensive commentary and answer your questions. It is recommended to make advanced bookings for group visits.
It is possible to take part in a fire ritual according to ancestors’ traditions during Līgo day (midsummer) celebrations. Singing, a run in the sunrise, toys and games in the Latvian spirit. Joyful dancing with the accompaniment of live music. Guests of the Midsummer night celebrations – Jāņubērni – gather with bouquets of wild flowers and woven wreaths.
