Culture and history
Latvian Heritage

Vējavas is on the shore of the Bay of Rīga in Vidzeme and in the Northern Vidzeme Biosphere Reserve.  Vējavas is a former fisherman’s homestead with its own cultural history, aura and magnificence.  Groups of various sizes can go to sea in a fisherman’s boat to watch the fishing process.  They can engage in conversations with fishermen to learn about lampreys and the lives of fishermen.  The lamprey weir on the Svētupe River differs from those on the Salaca River in terms of its structure and the fishing principles.  Tasty lampreys and smoked and cooked during the season.  A film about fishing for lampreys is available for viewing.
