Jaunpils castle is definitely worth visiting, because this is one of the oldest rare medieval castles, which has preserved its historical look.

 

 Jaunpils (which means New castle) was built in 1301 as the Livonian Order fortress by the Order’s Master Gottfried Fon Roga. The unique features of the castle are its medieval atmosphere and the folklore twist, including the exclusive medieval style rooms and the castle inn. Jaunpils castle has plenty of theme excursions, medieval shows, and workshops, where, together with monks, priests, jesters, lords of manor and servants you will have a possibility to become a true medieval hero. As each decent medieval castle, Jaunpils is linked to a romantic legend of Kartavkalni, an ancient settlement of Latvians, where it is believed an ancient castle had drowned. When somebody pronounces the name of the castle, it will instantly rise up.
