Cēsis: A Strong Contender for the European Capital of Culture

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!


Galleries in former industrial spaces, coffee shops and artisanal bakeries reviving old retail spaces. Creative quarters and co-working spaces popping up in previously abandoned locations. The last few years in Cēsis have seen independent businesses flourish and breathe new life into old buildings. Such creative communities call for rich cultural programmes. Cēsis has its very own purpose-built concert venue as well as an annual art festival and many other initiatives. As well as being a popular choice for culture lovers, Cēsis has won a name for itself among foodies with two of its restaurants boasting Hansa Culinary Diplomas. On the tour, you’ll experience how Latvia is advancing in line with 21st century trends, yet managing to retain its historical charm and maintain an eclectic mix of architecture from medieval castles to charming wooden architecture and cobblestone streets, which Cēsis is particularly known for.

IMPORTANT: You must apply at the link above and receive an acceptance email in order to attend this FAM trip.
