  • Cēsis castle is definitely good. Very well located, the information centre at the entrance to the Museum. We were on a frosty day and could it bask and continue sightseeing tour of the Chateau. Castle of exceptional looks from the Bottom of the Park, which is in itself a landmark of the town, and organically complements and completes the castle territory.

  • Remember the medieval music, which further transmits the desired atmosphere when visiting the Castle. Of course, it is worth noting the flashlight with candle, which felt imprisoned. Rearranging how people before in complete darkness and dampness there sat becomes horrible. There were no "surprises": exploring the old Castle, you can stumble upon a couple of toilets at that time) very beautiful Cabinet library in Gothic style in the new Tower of the Castle! At the end of the walks for all steps, it feels pleasant fatigue. Also at the checkout works very cute girl. Unfortunately, the name badge read unaware.

  • For the first time in my life I got the pleasure of ruins of a medieval castle. Children's delight to wander this lantern with this candle. Climb the Tower, go down to the basement. Very good views, mysterious spiral staircases inside the walls of the towers. Sraaashno))))
