See Cesis Medieval Castle, one of the best-preserved ruined castles in Latvia with a robust stone facade. Start the tour at the information center, where you can choose to go with a guide or by yourself. You'll receive a copy of the map and one candle to help you explore the castle. Once inside, look for the old dungeon, deep inside the earth, accessed by a narrow ladder. Walk through the mysterious hallways, the medieval porch, and the attic of the castle tower.

  • Great place, has loads to offer, a lot of information but only in English and Latvian. Have outside space with activities and people dressed in traditional clothing and doing asigned location tasks, like leather work, wood work, gardening, etc. Inside is great interaction where you can sit down for wonderful video of time starting from 1213 - 2019 years. There is also museum part with paintings. Full entrance price is 10 euro, garden and castle bit is 6 euro and museum is 4 euro on it's own. Would take about 3h to fully enjoy this place.
  • Stunning castle and mostly in great condition. Interesting displays inside along with a pretty good museum. The latter could do with some more English signage but apart from that a €10 entry fee and smiling attentive staff.
