Summer cottage and botanic garden of Kristaps and Auguste Morbergs
The estate in Jurmala, Dzintaru prospect 52/54 is a complex of several buildings. In 1925, Kristaps Morbergs, benefactor of the University of Latvia, bequeathed his property to the University.
The Morbergs family summer cottage is an exquisite monument of wooden, neo-Gothic architecture. Among its most notable values are paintings on the ceilings, neo-Gothic polychrome stoves and fire-places, parquet floors, stained glass, the original doors, windows, plank floors and many other significant architectural features.
In 2008, renovation works of Kristaps and Auguste Morbergs’ summer cottage and botanical garden were completed. Renovation was co-financed by the ERDF within the framework of the project “Effective use of cultural and historical heritage for development of tourism”.
At the moment, the estate is a tourist attraction and a representation premises for the University of Latvia. Nonetheless, it is also possible to organise conferences, seminars and receptions there for groups of up to 40 people.
