The most impressive and popular building from the first period of the independence of Latvia is the Hotel “Kemeri” or “White Ship”. Its unique forms were designed by distinguished Latvian architect Eižens Laube. This comfortable hotel with more than 100 rooms, hall furnished in the style of Ludwig IV, rose room and library rich in bibliographical rarities was opened to guests in 1936. The President of Latvia, Kārlis Ulmanis attended the opening ceremony. The “White Ship” is a unique architectonic jewel in Latvia; the sight of its façade alone is more than sufficient justification for a visit here. Restoration works have been under way at the hotel for several years now. Connoisseurs of Latvian cinema should look out for the hotel’s five-storey building with its roof terraces and sightseeing belvedere any time they get the chance to see Aigars Grauba`s film, “Dreadful Summer”, shot in 2000.
