About this tour
  • Medieval castle of Cēsis and the New Castle
    Cēsis medieval castle was one of the first stone fortifications built within the borders of ancient Latvia by German crusaders. The complex of castle buildings, preserved throughout the centuries, should be regarded a landmark of monumental architecture, which reflects construction traditions and features of artistic styles from the Livonian period. New Castle is a monument of great architectural importance and was built in the middle of the 18th century.

  • Cēsis St. John’s Church
    St. John’sChurch is one of the oldest medieval architectural monuments in Latvia. Church was built in the beginning of 13th century during the Christianization of Baltic’s for the purposes of the Livonian Holy Order because residence of the order was located in Cēsis; therefore Cēsis became one of the most important German power centers in the Baltic’s from 1237 up to 1561.

  • Pastime in Cēsis

  • Sigulda castle ruins and the new castle
    The Order of the Brothers of the Sword began building Sigulda castle in 1207. Initially, it was a castellum-type fort; following the defeat of the Brothers of the Sword in 1236, the Livonian Order modified it. During the Great Northern War, the castle was destroyed and never restored again. The south-west section of the convent building with Gothic window lintels and the main gate tower have survived to the present day.

  • "Gūtmaņa" cave
    The Gūtmaņala (Goodman's Cave) grotto is the most popular and vast cave in Latvia. It was formed in the course of 10,000 years by water gradually eroding sandstone. The grotto is a protected geological site and the oldest tourist attraction in Latvia. Gūtmaņala is 10 m high, 12 m wide and 18.8 m deep, and notable for inscriptions on its walls, the oldest of which date back to the years 1668 and 1677.

  • Museum reserve and impressive castle of Turaida
    Turaida Museum Reserve is a heritage site. The 42 hectares of grounds are replete with archaeological, architectural, historical and art monuments, all of which provide an account of the events from the eleventh century onwards.
