Local sights and attractions

Livonian Order Castle

The best-preserved Livonian castle in Latvia, dating back to ancient times. The castle was partly destroyed during the Great Northern War (1700-1721) and has not been restored ever since. (The Livonian Order was an autonomous Livonian branch of the Teutonic Order and a member of the Livonian Confederation from 1435–1561.

 

New Castle of Cesis (18th Century)

This castle houses The Museum of History and Art. From the Tower you'll have a breathtaking view on the ancient ruins and Gauja National nature reserve.

 

 


St John's Church (13th Century)
The largest church in northern Latvia. The church tower provides a beautiful panorama of the town. It was the Dome cathedral of Livonian Order, the master of the Order and his knights were buried here. In the south-western part of the wall we can watch the ancient solar clock dated 1744 year.

The Old Town

 

Narrow cobblestone streets have retained the original medieval town plan. Tile-roofed houses, souvenir shops and a cafe with a fireplace create an atmosphere of old times and crusaders.

Cesis is so homely and cosy that a visit to this town seems like a holiday to a kind Latvian granny. This is a place, where genuine cordiality and real coziness vibrates in the air; where one can laze a bit and forget everything else in the world; where each traveler is welcomed warmly and plied with the tastiest honey-covered bread slice ever.
Cesis is truly not only one of the oldest but also one of the most Latvian-spirit towns. Rich in picturesque landscapes and testimonies of the past, it embodies both an intriguing sense of antiquity and modern self-esteem. Both Cesis and the Cesis district are among the most attractive temptations for travellers in Vidzeme.
If you wish to recover your mind from the crowd of the city, you should take a walk through the small lanes of Cesis, which still maintain their layout as in medieval times. They cross unique silent yards, with small one- or two-storey buildings with red tile roofs on the side, as mute but friendly witnesses with lilac bushes and roses blossoming next to them in spring-time. The Cesis church and the old castle-ruins with the castle park are places where to let yourself think and wonder.

Gradual expansion and building continued until the 16TH century. The castle was one of the Riga Archbishops' residencies. After the collapse of Livonia states, Turaida castle became a private property and a part of the manor. After the fire in 1776, it was not renovated but the manor owners' living house was built in the castle yard. Romantic castle ruins attracted the tourists' attention already in the 18TH/19TH century. The sight area in the big round tower was built in 1936 but its restoration was started in 1953. 1973 was the start time for archeological excavations that lasted for more than 25 years followed up by restoration and reconstruction. Nowadays the expositions about its history and epoch events are located in the castle hall

The cave still bears inscriptions from as early as the 17th century; drinking the water is supposed to be healthy and is said to increase one's lifespan.

LIEPĀJA

 

Extreme trip to the Naval prison..

 

Durration: up to 48 hours

Included: Tour guide, all entrance tickets, champagne

Price: From 100.00 Euro p/p min 4 persons / max 8 persons

The Naval Port prison or guardhouse. The building was erected about 1900 and until 1997 it served as a place where military persons served their terms for breach of discipline. From the very first years of its existence, it was a place to break people’s lives and suppress their free will. As powers replaced one another, its prisoners changed as well: they included revolutionaries, seamen and non-commissioned officers of the tsarist army, deserters from the German Wehrmacht, enemies of the people in the Stalinist era, soldiers of both the Soviet army and the Latvian army and other rebels. The newest inscriptions on the cell walls by inmates date to fairly recently, 1997. Mysterious and inexplicable things have been noticed in the guardhouse: the rapping of footsteps, electrical bulbs that unscrew themselves, unaccounted for opening of closed cell doors… Yet encountering seeming apparitions in the prison halls has come as the most unpleasant surprise to many a visitor.

 

You can make a choise from several tours:
