"Home Café Days" in the Līgatne Administrative District, September 17-19

Līgatne looks like a small territory on the map, but it is a stable magnet for tourists.  People are excited about unique natural scenes, cultural and historical destinations, as well as a surprisingly broad range of businesses.  The herald of this location is the heritage left behind by the Līgatne paper factory.  There is evidence of the factory, and there is also information about how the factory helped to establish the lives of the Līgatne community.  Still, the landscape is unrepeatable.  Right in the town centre is a set of sandstone cliffs, along with phenomenal cellar caves.  A single swan floats from one end to the other of a pond, and that creates a romantic mood.  Visitors will find cafés, restaurants and everything that is needed to enjoy this lovely location with a fantastic atmosphere.

Three home cafés will welcome visitors during "Home Café Days."

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

► 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.
