See Castle Cesis, one of the best-preserved ruined castles in Latvia with a robust stone facade. Start the tour at the information center, where you can choose to go with a guide or by yourself. You'll receive a copy of the map and one candle to help you explore the castle. Once inside, look for the old dungeon, deep inside the earth, accessed by a narrow ladder. Walk through the mysterious hallways, the medieval porch, and the attic of the castle tower. For Castle Cesis and beyond, use our Cesis itinerary maker to get the most from your Cesis vacation.
