During the late 19th century and the early 20th century Latvia was a typical  agrarian land because the majority of the inhabitants lived in the countryside and were engaged in  agriculture. Farmers’ life and work in their turn were linked to a certain territory that formed a farmstead.  For centuries a farmstead used to be  Latvians’  traditional way of life and basis of values.

To preserve evidence of a typical  Zemgale farmer’s farmstead  for generations to come  in 1975 the collective farm ‘’Uzvara’’ started to develop an open-air museum. A dwelling house, a threshing barn, two granaries, a cattle-shed and a forge were taken to the territory of the museum and reconstructed. The furniture, the dishes, the clothing and the tools placed in the museum  buildings reflect working and household  conditions of  farmers and country craftsmen in Zemgale in the first half of the 20th century.

On the top floor of the bathhouse there is a double room for staying overnight ( if necessary more persons can be accommodated in the building).

A grill with the necessary accessories is available (it is free if the bathhouse is rented). There is a nice swimming place near the bathhouse and it is possible to rent boats.

It has been thought about children’s feeling of comfort at the recreation centre. A spacious outdoor field with a swing, slides, a merry-go-round and a sand box will keep your children engaged. Parents can enjoy themselves at the coffee-house or on its outdoor terrace from which activities of their children are in a good visibility. We also offer children’s bikes which can be used free.
