Description

The complex is located in the center of the Cēsis, where in a small area a number different historical areas intertwine. Medieval castle was built by the Livonian Brothers of the Sword and the Teutonic order. In the middle Ages it was one of the most important footholds for the Teutonic Order in the Baltics, but now – most impressive and well preserved castle ruins in Latvia. In the central manor house there is the Cesis History and Art Museum, where after the restoration, the exhibition of history and interior "Cēsis-Latvian History Symbol" is arranged. Guided tours, medieval activity center, medieval kitchen garden, artisan workshops, ancient jewellery smithy, multimedia exhibitions in the towers, museum exposition and New castle’s Lademaher tower also are offered for visitors.
