9 top things to do in Cesis, Latvia

9 top things to do in Cesis, Latvia

It seems that for travelers visiting Latvia, Cesis does not need big promotion because I saw many international tourists when I was visiting this historical town. The name of Cēsis (Wenden) first appeared in the historical sources in 1206. At the turn of the 14th-15th centuries, due to close proximity to the Gauja River, Cēsis got involved in trade and joined the Hanseatic League. In the middle ages the city had its own currency, and in the 20th century, it was even the capital of Latvia for two days. Modern Cēsis is a cultural center where the past is the basis for present times’ creativity.
Here is my selection of top 8 things to do in the city.

1) Climb Cesis Castle towers

The Cesis castle was built around 1214 and originally served as the residence of the Knights of the Livonian Brothers of the Sword, but under the management of its next owner – Teutonic Order – it gained fame as the most powerful fortress in Livonia.

Non guests are welcome to tour the public areas. You can enjoy the decadent lobby and some of the lovely landscaped grounds. The lobby is marble and has beautifully decorated golden domes. There are often free exhibits and some beautiful antiques to check out. Glamorous by day and night, Le Café at the Palace is shortlisted for “Best Café in Abu Dhabi” and “Best Afternoon Tea in Abu Dhabi” from year-to-year with its vast menu featuring exquisitely crafted delicacies and artisanal pastries and cakes complemented by coffee and herbal infusions from around the world.
