UNESCO Heritage Sites and Cultural Spaces

Cultural spaces are special places where traditions passed down from generation to generation are concentrated in an environment that relates to the origins of such traditions. In Latvia and Estonia, multiple cultural spaces can be found which are promoted by UNESCO granting international recognition.

Would it be “sklandrausis“, a traditional pie baked with love alongside Suiti women, or a moment of admiration observing Līvi men carrying out the catch of the day in the wind- swept shores of the Livonian landscape, the humbleness and wisdom sounded out in the polyphonic singing of Seto people, or the inspiration found in the cheerful colours of crafts developed by Kihnu island people; every single one of these experiences is an expression of tradition concentrated in time and space, which we can receive in an extraordinary tourism product that helps us travel meaningfully and to become more aware, skillful and inspired.
