Botanical guide. The Plant Finder

The main goal of the authors of this guide is to help you to spot the types of plants and mushrooms that are all around us. We really want to tell you interesting things about them.

“Worth Seeing” is our section on Latvia’s most interesting botany-related nature trails, including information about huge and/or interesting trees of various species, alleys of trees, botanical gardens, dendrology parks, other types of plant collections, museums, interesting farms, etc. You can visit each of them for yourself. We chose destinations in all of Latvia’s historical regions.

“Plant and Mushroom Routes” contains a list of ready-made routes, al- though we suggest that you bring along a guide to make sure that you en- joy the route thoroughly. Still, you can take the trips individually, adapt- ing the process to your own interests and capabilities.

“Plant Finder” is the biggest and most important part of the guide. There are included the photos of more than 400 different most common plants, lichens and mushrooms species in order to help you to recognize them in the field. Each species has got some interesting facts or stories as far as its possible.

“Protect and preserve” is our list of all of the protected species of plants which are often plucked for bouquets and other compositions, often with the person not even realising that he or she has picked a protected plant. These are species which need to be left alone right where they are.

This guide can be used as a workbook in your practical observations. Each of the «Worth seeing» objects has a check-box. Mark the sites you have visited. In the «Plant Finder» section, write the date you spotted the plant in the line «When ... », and the name of the place in the line “Where...”.

Analysis and description of traditional buildings in Slītere National Park

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.


COASTAL BUILDING GUIDELINES. Principles of seacoast construction. Regional peculiarities of construction. Guidelines for New Construction.

We all own a beautiful, diverse, almost 500 km long and still unspoiled treasure - the Baltic Sea coast. In order to preserve the coastline and to keep it traditionally tasteful for the benefit of both residents and guests, we, the Baltic Country Holidays, suggested writing these "Coastal Building Guidelines". The guidelines are intended for landowners, residents and businesses, all those involved in the construction process and coastal municipalities who plan and implement coastal construction in harmony with traditional and contemporary values. They describe the general building principles of the Baltic Sea coast of Latvia, briefly describing the regional differences and peculiarities of building in Vidzeme, Northern Kurzeme and Southern Kurzeme in each section of the historical building review.
