Come over and see what the Green Maiden in the Dungaga Castle is doing, listen to the pleasant sound of the Livonian tongue, to the soughing of the sea and the rustle
of the forests, and the tinging of the church tower bells. Greet the crocodile of Dundaga, take a nap in the shade of a mighty oak and climb up the Slītere lighthouse. Smell the scent of pines and junipers, count the old-fashioned wooden fences in Livonian villages. Taste the traditional carrot pie and smoked ﬂounder, and dance till
you drop at the annual Kolka ﬁshermen party.
Liv Coast – Līvõd Rānda
The Livonians or Livs are one of the Baltic Finno-Ugric peoples that inhabited an extensive
territory of the modern day Latvia in the past.
Now they are twelve villages on the shores of the so-called Great Sea and Small Sea, namely, the
Baltic Sea and the Gulf of Riga, where the roots and the beginnings of the Liv people lie. It is
their material and spirtual culture, the Liv dialect, and notable personalities of literature and art. It
is the green, the white and the blue in the Liv flag. It is the spite hardened by offshore winds and
persistence. Everything Livonian is in our midst.
On the first Saturday of August, the Livs from all over the world and representatives from related nations
annually gather in Mazirbe to celebrate the Liv Festival.
Sea, land, and a creative space for
everyone. Peoples and seas, men and nature,
sunrise and sunset meet at Cape Kolka. Seaways
and flyways cross here.
The Dundaga Castle with its two-meter high defensive walls and its vast manor estate that
reaches up to the former port of Sīkrags, the shipyards and the lighthouses of Cape Kolka, dates
from the 13th century and breathes history. Today it used for theatrical productions, wedding
ceremonies and celebrations, offers tours, degustation of local delicacies, comfortable and inexpensive
accommodation, and a range of untapped opportunities and discoveries. Here you can visit permanent and
temporary exhibitions, including the only permanent exhibition of medals in Latvia, maintained in cooperation
with the Latvian Art Medal Club. It is also home for an arts and music school.
