Mushroom kingdom is diverse, rich with species. More than four thousand mushroom species have been found in Latvia. Almost half a thousand – have been acknowledged as edible, but majority of mushroom pickers collect only few dozen of mushroom species for consumption. It is better to be safe and sure about what is put in the mushroom basket! But if curiosity takes the upper hand and you want to know what are the unusual mushrooms you found, take them with you to the Mushroom Day to the LVM Embassy and together with mushroom experts learn more about them.

The LVM Embassy is in Rīga, Vaiņodes Street 1. On the Mushroom Day Embassy will be open from 10 AM until the last visitor and the last question. Visitors have a free of charge car park.
