As most of Slītere NP territory was historically inhabited by Livs and in order to preserve Liv cultural and historical territories and to ensure preservation of Liv language traditions and other cultural and historical values, the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Latvia On December 14, 1999 the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Latvia approved the action plan of the state long-term target program “Livs in Latvia”. Within the framework of the plan, S. Cimermanis prepared a list of preserved objects of national construction. Inventory and photo fixation of the volume, details, construction joinery, facade decoration of the villages, fences and buildings in the territory of Slītere NP is based on the aforementioned research by S. Cimerman. The purpose is to give those interested the familiarity with the building traditions of the former Liv villages, to understand the local building style and to use it for the construction of new buildings.
