THE HORSE AND WILD OX PASTURE IN PAPE NATURE PARK

Nature / landscape

Once upon a time, before humans actively engaged in farming, these animals were common to European habitats, contributing to the diversity of nature and meadow formation. Pape Nature Park offers a walk along the Baltic Sea or a longer hike around Lake Pape. Nearby the lake, there are several ancient cult places and secular stones with Ezerskola Sacrificial Stone being the most famous. Wild horses and oxen graze on the eastern bank of the lake. To see ancient buildings, tools, garments and a more than 1,100-year-old log-boat, visit a typical fishermen/farmer house of the coastal area – “Vītolnieki” in Pape Ķoņu village.
