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.

Frekari upplýsingar um Iveta

Iveta

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.
