    The stone castle of the Livonian Order

    by Linndy Written Jan 2, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Cesis castle is the most impressive and best-preserved set of castle ruins in Latvia, and it is certainly the most popular attraction in the old part of Cesis. The Cesis castle was one of the strongest fortresses that the Livonian Order had in the entire Baltic region. Built in the 13th century, the Cesis castle was the seat of the Livonian Order’s masters.
    TIP A tour around the castle by the guides dressed up like LO masters is something really worth to see!
