"History in todays landscape"
We invite you to get to know Straupe and its buildings through the stories preserved in the memories and picture albums of the local residents and to see with your own eyes what twists of fate it has experienced over several centuries. In the Middle Ages Straupe was a member of Hanseatic League. It was a city with a busy everyday life, capable of providing for itself both with food, clothing and craftworks. Today the participation in the merchant union allows us to call Straupe the smallest city of the Hanseatic League in the world!
