Turaida castle is a recently reconstructed medieval castle in Turaida. This majestic castle stands on the opposite bank of Gauja River from Sigulda. It was built in 1214 by Livonian Brothers of the Sword. Its most impressive element is a northern forecastle’s gate tower, but it is not the only one. The main tower is thinner and higher, stands in a middle of the castle. The previous wooden one was called “Land of Peace”, but this one became better known locally by the Livonian name of Turaida. This Latvian Castle is built in the red bricks constructions of the Baltic crusading orders. Several times it was reconstructed, but now only several parts left: the main tower, semi-rounded tower and the western section of the castle. Despite this, Turaida Castle is one of the most visiting places in this region. Inside there is an exhibition about the history of bricks castle and Gauja Livs. Just don’t be lazy and climb upstairs to the main tower! From the viewing place, you will see the unique landscape of picturesque Gauja valley and the territory of Turaida Museum Reserve. Enjoy this view of Latvian nature and feel the majesty of this extraordinary Turaida Castle. Book a tour from Baltic Tours and face the history.
