Það sem verður gert

We will start with historical insight into how Latvia became part of the Soviet Union supported by documentary movies and photos. 50 years under soviet regime have left a lot of trails, both visible and intangible. While walking through the city I will show you the iconic sites of that period and share stories about life during that time. What happened to beautiful residential buildings and how people lived? What happened to churches in the country that proclaimed atheism? How Latvians used subtext in art and literature to circumvent soviet censorship? We will also visit an art exhibition of the soviet period, a secluded place rarely known even by locals (closed on Saturdays and Sundays). What was a singing revolution and how did a chain of over 2 million people that streched throughout the Baltic countries lead to the break from the USSR? What legal, human, social and economic challenges did Latvia face after regaining independence? We will discuss all of this. On our way I will let you experience typical soviet style food and will challenge you to some board games popular at that time.

I left a CEO position in an international company to escape routine office hours and to immerse myself into a new adventure of meeting people and sharing my love for Riga and it's vibrant history. For the first half of my life I lived under the soviet regime. During the transition period towards independent Latvia I worked as a TV news reporter witnessing my country's transformation from various angles. I am here to share my personal stories, as well as provide historical insights.

Iveta was very knowledgeable. She had passion and engagement when telling the story. She took plenty of time. She was flexible with adjusting to what I wanted and even helped me get a taxi to get me to my boat on time. It could not have been better.

Yveta nous a fait découvrir la façon de vivre des habitants de Lettonie pendant la période soviétique en nous faisant visiter des lieux emblématiques et nous racontant des anecdotes. Nous avons apprécié son désir de nous faire partager un maximum d’informations sur la vie des habitants mais aussi sur leur façon d’exprimer leur art au travers de la peinture notamment. Yveta est une personne chaleureuse qui nous a fait partager un déjeuner et un jeu de l’époque dans un lieu que nous n’aurions jamais trouvé seuls. Je recommande chaleureusement cette expérience.

This was an amazing tour. All four of us said it was the best thing we did on our trip to Riga. We found out just how brutal the conditions were for people living under Soviet rule. The history of their independence and how the country has moved on. Iveta was very informative and a very lovely lady who know her history as she has lived through it. Would highly recommend.
