To introduce you to the formation of this unique region and community, we will visit Alsunga castle of the Livonian Order, the local history museum and the weaving workshop, where wives of Alsunga weave fabric for new Suiti costumes, belts and garters, and other elements of the traditional folk costumes.

Seeing is believing! But we offer you also hearing and feeling the Suiti community in all its splendour - Suiti performance - burdon singing and Suitu womens' typical 'teasing'.

What's inside a Suiti woman's dowry chest? Get to see the colorful and decorative costumes.

Visit a 17th century church, which holds te secret behind the unique blend of traditional and Christian, where Suiti and Catholic traditions have been interwoven.
