Cinevilla: Spend the night in 1920s Latvia

Built in 2004 as the set for "Defenders of Latvia," Cinevilla is a strange mix of historic recreation and Hollywood-esque fantasy world.

Built in 2004 as the set for "Defenders of Latvia," Cinevilla is a strange mix of historic recreation and Hollywood-esque fantasy world.

Spanning over 370 acres in total, the complex has all the features of early 20th century Latvia, including a small town, a city resembling Riga and typical Latvian farmland. Down to every last detail, the ghost town movie set spared no expense. Three bridges cross a man-made river, which also features a steamship replica, harkening back to turn-of-the century Riga.
