Address : Pils laukums 9, Cēsis, Latvia     Google maps

This castle was built first time in 1209 by the German crusaders. When it was enlarged and fortified it was serving nicely until 1561. Then started a period until 1777 when it was almost totally destroyed or demolished few times and it was under many different rulers.
Since 1949 the castle has been a museum and it's been almost constantly under reconstruction.
The entrance fee was few euros (in 2015) but there were parts that was closed. If you pay the fee you will see quite a lot of the castle and you will get to visit the dungeon-jail!!! (The ladders down to the basement through a very small hole in the floor!)

Condition for logging the find

It's enought to leave your bike and walk around the beautiful central area and parks of the Cēsis city, but it is highly recommended to visit the castle!
