It is a fortress built in the 15th century, where two rivers collide.
In the 17th-18th centuries, grand earthworks were built around the castle. The only thing that survived through the centuries are the ruins of the medieval fortress with a watchtower. The new castle is in the middle of renovation now. Visitors can see the castle history exhibition and its renovation plans.
Rastrelli, the famous architect of the Winter Palace in St Petersbourg, had also projected a palace in Latvia. This is one of Latvia’s signature landmarks. The palace and its garden are the museum now. It is also used as a venue where the president of Latvia has his high-level visitors from abroad.
