Uldevena Castle

Uldevena Castle is a twelfth-century ancient Latvian wooden castle, erected based on materials obtained from archaeological digs.

This castle is not a replica of a specific castle mound; when erecting its protective walls and residential buildings, samples of structures found at various locations were used (Mežotne, Talsi, Rauna, Tenīskalns, Jersika castle mound, Riga village, etc.), thus creating a general, ideal-type castle mound of Baltic chiefs. Here one can view homes with small smoke rooms, potters’ and blacksmiths’ workshops, view replicas of clothing, and obtain extensive information on life in ancient Latvia in the late Iron Age.

It is possible to stage an ancient Latvian wedding ritual.
