Our Glass Pirts is brighter and more spacious due to its modern design. It is also more accessible to people with access needs and to children. The Glass Pirts is located in the open plan area of Ziedlejas, next to the pond.
The Smoke or Black Pirts, in turn, is more primeval – a Ritual in this type of Pirts can be felt more deeply and the contrasts are sharper. This type of Pirts represents ancient Latvian Pirts traditions. The Smoke Pirts is characterised by a smoky aroma - when the Pirts heats up, the black soot settles on the walls. Soot is an essential absorbent whilst the smoke is an excellent disinfectant. The Smoke Pirts is hidden away at the edge of the forest. You can cool off in a raised spring pool next to the Smoke Pirts - it stays cool even on hot summer days.
Architects from Open Ad and Ziedlejas’ Masters created both Pirts (pl.) to be contemporary and functional whilst keeping Latvian Pirts’ traditions as their basis.
Listed here are some of the special Pirts Rituals we offer (duration 4-5 hours):
The basis of a Pirts Session is a 4 hour long session involving various procedures, the aim of which are to give the body and spirit a rest, relax the body, take a break from everyday rush and stress, and to restore strength and balance within oneself.
A special Pirts Ritual (for example, Pirtīžas, Birthday Pirts, Marriage (Līdzināšana) Pirts and others) is a special occasion. During a period of 4 to 6 hours, Ziedlejas Pirts Masters lead a session involving a defined sequence of actions with a specific intention, feel and energy. These rituals take special preparation for Pirts Masters. The recipient/-s should get into the right mindset before attending. The ritual actions can have an impact on the recipients’ future; therefore it is important to communicate with Pirts Masters in advance regarding various elements of the ritual and their intent.
