    ... colonial fashion they thought the local population looked like the Wends from the south Baltic coast in what is now Germany (totally no relation. Just like Native Americans were called Indians by Europeans), and so named the town they founded Wenden.

    ... and don't want the big city, Kuldiga might be our town of choice. It's full of nice wooden buildings, it is not yet completely renovated and there are hardly any architectural sins: no big Soviet apartment blocks, no factories in the city center, not to many empty spaces with garbage or ruins of houses.
