Permanent exhibition of the North Latgale Centre for Intangible Cultural Heritage

The aim of the centre’s permanent exhibition is to promote and explain the role of the intangible cultural heritage both in the past and the present. The exhibition tells about the unique culture of Balvi region and people preserves its heritage for next generations.

The exhibition reveals several major aspects of the cultural heritage of North Latgale, creating for every of these aspects a separate room. Every exhibition room has its distinctive environment where authentic exhibits are integrated with modern technologies. The exhibition widely uses sound and video; in touch-screens visitors can find useful information as well as attractive games appealing to any age group. Several exhibits are “brought to life” by surprising light projections.
