Livonia Latvia Museums

The capital of the charming Baltic country of Latvia is the Jelgava Palace, a well-preserved castle ruin in the Latvian city of Riga. It is famous for being the most interesting place in Latvia and being one of the most beautiful and best preserved medieval castles. With its beautiful architecture, rich history and unique architectural features, it is an ideal place for visiting Latvia and a great tourist destination for tourists.

The capital Riga, which is located on the Daugava, dates back to the second century and has been associated with the Vikings. During World War II, Nazi Germany occupied the city and made it part of the territory that included Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Belarus. In August 1940 the country was annexed by the Soviet Union and occupied by the Germans. After the end of the Second World War, in August 1945, Rigsia became the capital of the Latvian SSR under the command of Prime Minister Raimundas Krasnodar.

The First Congress of Soviets of Latvia, which met in Riga on January 13, 1919, proclaimed Soviet power, adopted the first Constitution of Soviet Latvia, formed the first Soviet-Latvian government, and declared Latvia independent. On 3 July 1919, Rigsia Castle became the property of the Latvian state, where the Prime Minister and the State Chancellery were active.

In 2012, the future of the museum was in the air: Will it come back or become even more comprehensive, sensual and inclusive? Soviet regime and castle, we have worked for and continue to work for the restoration of Latvia's independence, but also for the restoration and independence of Latvia. Since 1920, the main exhibition of the museum, "Rigsia Castle: Soviet State Chancellery," has been located in the Castle Museum in Riga, the capital of Latvia and home of the Latvian National Museum.

The museum is housed in a remarkable architectural monument built between the thirteenth and twentieth centuries and has a total area of more than 1,000 square meters.

The construction of the building began in the 18th century, when parts of modern Latvia were under the administration of the Russian Empire under the rule of the Livonia province, which included Riga, Klaipeda and several other towns and villages. This was the capital of ancient Livonia, which at that time consisted of what is now Estonia and Latvia, as well as a number of other cities.

Riga was then under the influence of the Polish-Lithuanian community in 1581 and had the status of a free imperial city. Latvia in general, and Riga in particular, was the center of the national awakening that gradually intensified among Soviet Jews in the 1970 "s. Zionism was particularly widespread among Latvian Jews and Latvia, but forced industrialization and the planned construction of new cities such as Klaipeda, Kaunas, and Krakow changed the demographic makeup of Riga. It was the home of the Betar Youth Movement, which Jabotinsky founded in 1923, as well as a number of other anti-communist movements.

The rise of the Latvian bourgeoisie made Riga the centre of a Latvian national awakening, which in turn led to the establishment of an anti-communist movement in the city and the founding of its first political party, RIGA, in 1924.

The railways also enabled Latvians to travel across the country to the first Latvian folk song festival, organised by the Riga Latvian Society in 1873, and to a number of other cultural events.

If you have time to delve a little deeper into the culture of the city, Riga has a number of museums, such as the Latvian Art Museum and the Latvian History Museum. Latvian higher education institutions have also played a significant role in the development of the country's cultural heritage, including the National Museum, the University of Latvia and a large number of other museums.

The museum also keeps medieval documents and documents on Latvian history, which are kept in foreign archives, not to mention private family archives in Germany. The library also has numerous monographs and periodicals on Jewish genealogy in Latvia and the Baltic States. In the 20th century Latvia had one of the largest collections of historical documents in the world: the Latvian History Museum. It consists of documents from the time when Latvia twice fought for its independence, as well as documents about the history of the country, such as maps and maps.

Riga (1927) comprises 111 separate maps and border projections prepared by the Latvian-Lithuanian Border Committee. The collection reflects the history of Latvia's independence from the Soviet Union and its subsequent independence. Riga was seized by domestic and foreign counter-revolutionary forces on 22 May 1919, and from 1919 to 1940 it was the capital of bourgeois Latvia. Latvia survived without them and without its capital, but the library has more than 1,000 hardback copies of documents from Latvia and the Baltic States from that period.
