Travel with taste at "Home Café days" along the central banks of the Daugava River on July 24 and 25

This will be a most tasty trip at the central part of Latvia's destiny river. Just like flowing water, six administrative districts have woven together into a new and unified Aizkraukle Administrative District. From the Pļaviņas Administrative District, where people can record the ornaments of their lives, to the Green administrative district of Skrīveri, from Jaunjelgava surrounded by legendary forests to homes in Sēlija - the Nereta Administrative District. 29 home cafés will welcome you to offer a diversity of flavours.  

All events can be found under "Home Cafés" or on the "Map" (in Latvian). 

Welcome to Central Daugava!  You will enjoy an exciting trip of tastes, landscapes and stories, as long as you keep the country's epidemiological rules in mind!  Please contact destinations in advance to make sure that their services will be available.

► What are "Home Café Days"?
The yards of farms and other places that are not linked to dining and accommodations on a daily basis will turn into cafés for a day or two.  Guests will be able to taste local foods to learn new flavours, as well as to enjoy an interesting cultural programme.  Each farm has families and/or friends who will prepare a special offer -- flatbreads, cakes, casseroles etc. to be served with tea or coffee.  Each farm will present the name of its café, and the products will be served with characteristic cultural characteristic and stories.  There will also be various cultural activities such as handicrafts, games, playing of musical instruments, etc.
