The capital of Latvia is a vibrant contemporary city with rich cultural heritage, tangling together charming medieval alleys, Art Nouveau architectonic splendour and remains of Soviet modernism. Being the European Capital of Culture 2014, the city hosts diverse programme of exhibitions, shows and other activities. We are truly glad to announce that the conference venue will be located in the new building of National Library which is just to be opened. Library, the new home of Archives of Latvian Folklore, has granted access to state of art meeting premises that provide all necessities for a scholarly meeting. Apart from sessions in Riga, one day of the conference (October 22) will take place in the scenic district of Turaida, about 50 kilometres from the capital. Situated in Gauja National Park, Turaida Museum Reserve comprises Turaida medieval castle and numerous natural and cultural monuments in its surroundings.
