Libava sailer, an authentic historic replica of a pleasure yacht of the 17th century in Jurmala, Latvia

102 vots
Welcome on board Libava sailer, an authentic historic replica of a pleasure yacht of the 17th century. Build after prototypes of shallow-draught Dutch Herren yachts, three centuries ago such vessels made part of almost every royal fleet in Europe. Originally based in the seaport of Liepaja (hence the name Libava, an old German for Liepaja), every summer the sailer heads to Jurmala, a popular resort on the shore of Riga Bay. Here throughout the warm season captain Anatoly Molokanov and his crew arrange cruises for everyone who’s fond of sea romance and fresh breeze of the Baltic Sea.

LIBAVA also actively participates in maritime festivals, including the famous Baltic Sail that annually takes place in different harbours across the Baltic Sea. One of the most exciting highlights of many festivals are historical re-enactments when costumed actors recreate lifestyle or specific moments (battles probably being the most popular) from the past. A quick glimpse into how a typical marine promenade of a local aristocracy could have looked like a few centuries ago, LIBAVA together with historical re-enactors from the studio Ceremonija.lv, resident “court” performers of Rundale Palace, have posed for a virtual immersion into the pompous epoch of Rococo.
