The First World War has left its mark everywhere in Medumi, in Augsdaugava district. The most visible are reinforced concrete bunkers, traces of trenches. Local people constantly find evidences of one of the biggest wars in human history - parts of weapons, remains of shells, elements of uniforms, household items. Visitors of the Exposition Center in Medumi can not only look at historical artifacts, but also take on the role of a soldier. An imitation of a bunker and armor will be created in one of the exhibition halls - a fragment of a trench with a small hiding place, attributes of the battlefield, soldier mannequins. Much attention will be paid to audio and video equipment, which will allow you to feel the atmosphere of the battlefield.
