Pāvilosta Local History Museum is located in Pāvilosta’s first stone building constructed in 1879 – the House of Harbour Pilots. Standing in the very mouth of the River Saka, on a narrow strip of land between the river and the Baltic Sea, the building has witnessed many events. In the museum’s digital display, every “golden grain of sand” sheds light on Pāvilosta’s hundred-year-old history between 1918 and 2018. In Soviet times, Pāvilosta was a closed Soviet border zone. However, the town dwellers’ old traditional livelihood – fishing – remained alive.

 

Every visitor can put on 3D glasses and try the role of a fisherman – creel lamprey in the River Saka, take a small fishing boat and fish for groundlings along the Baltic seashore, as well as board a larger Baltica-type fishing vessel and go further into the open sea to look for herring.
