Rafting Festival - 25th anniversary in honor of craft skills
Imagine - the Gauja is full of logs about six and four meters long, which, so close to each other, form such a dense layer that the water is almost invisible! And they are masterfully driven by raftsmen, who have taken their places on the 70-80 meter long tail raft. This view was common until the end of the 1960s, when the Gauja was a waterway for transporting timber. Today, the skills of raft crafts have been purposefully passed on to future generations, and in 2021 Latvia applied them to the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. On May 21, everyone is invited to the Rafters Festival in Strenči, where the skills of rafters will be honored for the 25th time.
