  • Bauska Cheese Shop, Camembertielas (near the city centre). 09:30-19:30. Latvia's most famous cheese shop, famous for selling up to seventy thousand different kinds of Latvian cheese, although admittedly the majority of those are just traditional Latvian cheese made with a slight variation to the breed of cow, flavouring of the milk, etc. Many Bauskan merchandise is based on the famous cheese shop, including a cartoon character, Mr. Cheese (Mr Sieru in Latvia), who can be seen on posters throughout the city. Nice spot for enjoying whatever type of cheese you seem to be interested in. Due to hygiene issues, the 'make your own cheese' option has been closed.



There is one hotel and three benches.
