Sculpture "Acorn-kid on a boat trip"
An acorn has become the symbol of Kandava. In 2010, the local resident Zigmunds Piņķis created this sculpture.
Kandava is an old town encircled with ancient oak-trees. The trees were there before the town itself. Also the coat of arms of the town depicts acorns and oak-tree leaves, and the open-air stage in Kandava has long been called "Ozolāji" (in Latvian – an oak-tree grove). The townspeople have restarted the tradition of making acorn coffee, which, if prepared correctly, is rather delicious. That is how the character "Acorn-kid" came about, inviting the travellers to go on a trip in the area of Kandava and in the ancient river valley of Abava.
