Presence of Lithuania in the area of Priekule and Vaiņode!

Guests will enjoy people's hospitality, excitable stories and tasty treats which show how talented local people are, how much they belong to the region, and how much they adore guests. 

Each guest will be addressed in his or her language.  There are beautiful hillocks, wide valleys, endless nature trails, parks and places where culture interacts with history.  People bake tasty bread, prepare various other treats, make everything by hand, tell exciting stories and proudly show their farms. 

Here visitors will find the largest clear stream in Latvia and the highest castle hill in Kurzeme, hear the legend about the first person who could fly, see the airfield from which the first gliders in Latvia rose into the sky, visit castles and estates full of legends, and hear the story of a Latvian Romeo and Juliet.  There are lots of things here, but the cornerstone is local people who believe in, hope for and keep in their hearts a great deal of love for the region. 

From Vaiņode to Kalēti, from Gramzda to Virga, from Priekule to Embūte and Krote -- those are the roots for the region. 

"Home Café Days" from August 6-8 will feature goodies at ten different cafés.

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

Follow along with the news and be the first one to learn about new events!

► 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.
