The laundry house Vešūzis

In 2018, an authentic laundry house of the 18th/19th century was renovated, now offering the learning programme of ancient laundry washing traditions.

The building consists of three floors, of which each has been developed to represent its historical functions: on the first floor, everyone can learn how the ancient laundry washing and ironing process took place; the second floor houses the laundry drying room; and the third floor is home to the laundress' room.  The laundry house is a original and authentic part of the complex of Lielplatone Manor. It is possible to participate in demonstrations of ancient laundry washing process under the guidance of laundress.
