The White Dune is chosen by newly-weds as a place for exchanging wedding rings. The White Dune is a natural preserve. It got its name from the white hardened sand layers which are similar to sandstone. Over the course of time the sand was compacted and, with the help of water, cemented by wind. The surrounding territory is landscaped and improved and slopes of the dune are consolidated.
A watchtower and a sightseeing platform have been built on the top of the dune. This is the place where such films of the Riga Film Studio as “Kā gulbji balti padebesi iet” and “Nauris” were shot. The roughly 3.5km long walking trail called Sunset Trail stretches from the White Dune up to the Pēterupe.
The trail goes along the lower reaches of the Pēterupe between the river and the Riga–Tallinn motorway. When walking along the trail, you can see 20 secular pines as well as trees with unusual forms:for instance, pines whose branches are of the same length as the trunk and stretch parallel to the ground or are twisted in various twines.
The monument is based on folk traditions, depicting Bearslayer’s fight with the dragon. Bearslayer is the symbol of Latvian culture, embodying the fight against the Dark Forces, liberating Latvia from all evil. The sculpture and the square were restored in 2003, and in 2006 the fountain “Horizon” was opened.
A long-time tradition at the Open-air Museum. Visitors can choose from a wide array of eco-products and wares.
