Overview of Janis Rainis House in Birkineli

Janis Rainis House Museum, Latvia

Janis Rainis's house has gone through an entire era in the life of the Latvian people: the owners have changed, the library, the house of culture, and even the collective farm office have found their home in the building. On November 9, 1996, after many years of ruin, the building reopened its doors to visitors as a museum.

Over the years, the Reinis House in Berkenel has become an important cultural center, where creative meetings take place, annual Poetry Days, Ligo festival, open-air exhibitions and exhibitions of professional artists are organized.
