Why is this house so special? It’s exterior and interior was all planned and sketched by Ziedonis and his wife. This house was built by author himself with the help of one carpenter Otto Bērziņš in a five-year period from 1970 till 1975. This house is also very special because it resonates with Imants Ziedonis poetic works and is even called the greatest volume of Imants Ziedonis collected works.
