Cesis Medieval Castle reviews
As we wanted to see on our way to Riga also something else, we decided to visit it and it was worth taking a longer way to Riga. It has an interesting history and it is well restored. It was the... more »
Very well preserved, historically relevant, nice multimedia presentation, very instagrammable:)- - really worth an 1 h stop more »
One of the very few tourist sites in cesis. Entrance fee is 4.5 euro for students. It was definitely worth more than that. Although the descriptions in the museum is in Latvian, there are quite a bit of photo spots where you can take decent photos with medieval-like background. Medieval castle was an interesting experience with the candle lantern. Very dark inside. No artificial at all.
Well worth visiting! A wealth of material to read through and a very high tech display in the main castle tower - highly recommended for an insight into the history in a few minutes! There are activities for children as well so all ages are catered for. The plans for further restoration are exciting if a long way off! Will certainly visit again in years to come and see how it's changing...
