Welcome to "Home Café Days" in Latgale on August 13 and 14!

Lettigalians love to eat and treat their guests.  Are you tired of the hurly-burly?  Do you miss sincere conversations?  Make sure to take part in home café days in Central Latgale, where you will find small and cosy cafés that are prepared to welcome each guest for wonderful meals that have proven their value and quality over the course of centuries.   

Central Latgale is a small part of the large Latgale region, and here visitors will find a concentration of Lettigalian traditions and hospitality, which are known all around the world.  Guests can visit the small and cute town of Preiļi, where the town centre boasts the largest urban park in Latvia (42 ha).  At the centre of he park is the Preiļi Castle, which has undergone renovation.  Modern Rēzekne offers the best landscape from the castle hill that has ruins from the 13th century.  Nearby is the large GORS acoustic concert hall.  Visitors must also visit the lovely Lūznava Estate in the Rēzekne Administrative District and enjoy the beautiful views of Lake Rāzna, which is known as the Sea of Latgale.  In Ludza, in turn, guests will find dreamy visions as they walk down the cosy streets of the town and learn about the stories of Latvia's oldest town. 

Central Latgale is an excellent weekend destination for fans of active tourism, those looking for good feelings, and those who enjoy excellent food.

► 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.
