Places to visit in Cēsis. Languages: ru, he, en

If my memory serves me well, in Soviet times there was an opinion that there was something in common between the Lyme and Laima Vaikule candies :) In fact, there is nothing more than a coincidence in the name. But there is a lot in common between the Lyme chocolate factory and Israel. Ilya Frumchenko, the owner of the Lyme factory, realizing in 1936 what the Nazis and Latvian nationalists had prepared for the Jews of Riga, loaded several machines from his Lyme factory onto the ship and went to Eretz Israel. Here in Ramat Gan, he continued to make chocolate and sweets, establishing a new factory, only the factory has already received a new name: Elite. The store was not crowded. Saleswoman and us. Smiling pretty, the saleswoman said: Nou photo. Yes, not knowing why, she dropped this simple phrase in a foreign language. “Well, it should be :) for decency at least,” she probably thought, and a little embarrassed, sincerely smiling and with genuine goodwill, insinuatingly said again: “know photo”. It was very funny :) we bought sweets and thanked the woman in the Russian language that is accessible to us all, the more she was embarrassed. And at the exit we were waiting for a big white cat, which, according to the tradition adopted in these places, also softened: “know photo” and ran away home ... Translated with Google Translate
