16 August, 2021 seen 7,648The other day in the company of three we headed to Birtvisi Canyon for some hiking experience. It all started reading some info of a non-standard close to Tbilisi located destinations. And Birtvisi just popped up on this list. Turns out - there is a Birtvisi Fortress located somewhere in the middle of these canyons. I had never before heard of such place…
Kemeri National Park in Latvia is special for its great biological diversity, the unique Kemeri Bog, mineral waters and therapeutic mud found here.
It was on a lazy Sunday afternoon we decided to visit Kemeri National Park, as we had no idea what exactly to look for, we decided to make a stop at first "look-a-like" place, so we ended at Forest House, located some 45km from nations capital Riga.
I was equipped with my Canon DSRL camera and in a good mood to make some panoramic photos here:
Forest House in Kemeri National Park
Rough translation from Latvian about Forest House (Meža māja)
The Nature Education Center "Meža māja" is located on the banks of the Vēršupīte, surrounded by the wet woods in Ķemeri National Park. The historic building was originally built as an entertainment center and restaurant, but later it was home to a children's sanatorium. Now the Forest House is managed by the Nature Protection Board and, with the establishment of the Nature Education Center, offers nature education activities.
