  • The ruins of course but what's left is very cool. To visit issued flashlights with a candle as well as were already in the twilight it gave some mystery and mistichnosti. Were happy like kids!

  • You must have seen this impressive fortification from the 13.Jhd. when visiting Latvia. Here is the cradle of the national flag of Latvia and the system shows impressive, life in the Middle Ages was how hard.

  • The place is beautiful, picturesque. Like something to restore. But the strikes that the main gallery with Gothic ceilings and open-air left to destroy. Only the tower is one set that has more or less remained but needs restoration. It is clear that local money no need a sponsor. It is a pity that one Tower almost split in half. But oochen' it was interesting to climb on one of the towers, walk down the steep stairs or even go down to the basement.
