The colors and sounds of the Baltic Countries come together in Dublin


Dubliners who went to Phoenix Park for a walk on Sunday 3rd July had a glimpse of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, thanks to the event organized, at Farmleigh House, by the embassies in Ireland of the three mentioned countries: the 'Baltic Day' began with the show of dance groups from Lithuania, 'Spiečius', Estonia, 'Liris' and Latvia, 'Karbunkulis', followed in the afternoon by music by folk bands 'Meelika Hainsoo & Ülemakstud Rentslihärrad' (Estonia),'Kreicbergi' (Lettonia),'Baltos Varnos' (Lituania). There has been space (in the framework offered by one of the best corners of Phoenix Park, a wide green area in the town of Dublin) for recipes, craftwork and info about the Baltic Countries, with many ideas for travels.

Almost half of Latvian territory is covered by forests (more than forty-four percent), the Gauja national park is a well known tourist destination thanks to its more than five hundred castles, manors, mills. Twenty-five thousand Latvian nationals live in the Republic of Ireland, and many nationals from Lithuania and Estonia; in addition to the promotion of pro European policies (often in cooperation with Northern European countries) the recent history features other similarities between Latvia and Ireland: between 2004 and 2007 the nickname ‘Baltic Tiger’ has often been used (along with ‘Celtic Tiger’ for Ireland). In 2014 the Euro has been introduced, since then investments in Education and Research have kept growing. With its about seven hundred thousand inhabitants (a third of a population of two million) the capital Riga, on the world heritage list for its history, features among its architectural characteristics many examples of art noveau and umpteen wooden palaces. Latvia (in a way similar to that of Lithuania and Estonia) succeeded, by means of its traditions and music, in maintaining alive its culture and language, notwithstanding many centuries of foreign rule.
