  • Ēdole Castle is situated in 180 km from Riga this medieval castle was built in the period from 1248 to 1275. Exact date nobody say cannot. Then the castle was completed and reconstructed many times. In 1020, he took the final appearance. It is the only Castle in Latvia, in which they live. The castle is a hotel. Entrance fee to the castle of 5 euro per person. And you can walk around and see all that your heart desires, right down to the dungeons. A well-preserved Castle of Edole, is ingeniously designed building of the fortification Of the castle's defensibility. demonstrated by the fact that in 1583, during the war of Piltenskoe heritage, Polish Army was unable to acquire a lock, though and has made repeated attempts to assault. In 1617 the Castle partially damaged during the Polish-Swedish war during 1905 revolution the castle was partially damaged by fire (that's 2 and 3 floors). Work on the restoration of the Castle began in the year 1906. The Castle also suffered from the angry peasants: they Latvian set it on fire in a protest against exploitation by the German princes. In 2007 year the castle appeared. New owner restored the grandeur of the Castle and even enlarged it, buying at auction antique artifacts. The richness of the Interior can surprise it kind of traveler. But the current climate in the decoration of the Castle already does not displays the previous, inherent to their owners-dynasty Berov. There is a park around the Castle, the Church of Ēdole Lutheran Church (1647g) from the observation deck of the Tower offers a beautiful view of the surroundings.
