As Cesis is known from 13th century and was as a residence of Livonian Order, it has also a feeling it is a special place, just pity that there are not so much of attractions left.
Anyway, from there that left - as Cesis castles or Cathedral I could that medieval atmosphere. Streets are also more narrow as in medieval times, but houses are really more new.
I get most strong impression after visiting Old Livonian Castle’s ruins. First, we had to put on safety caps and take candlelight. It seemed so romantic in the start. Climbing to the top of Old Castle’s Tower, during 2-3 metres no windows, absolutely darkness and you can see only candlelight – extreme.
Fondest memory: However, the result is fantastic – grandiose castle’s Tower and view to the Cesis.
The Caslte’s Park is the town’s most beautiful park and a favourite place for relaxation. The origins of the park date back 1812, when work first began to turn the adjacent Riekstu Kalns (Nut Hill) and the castle ruins into a park.
Fondest memory: So calm and green place in the middle of the town
