Uldevena Castle

Uldevena Castle is a 12th century ancient Latvian wooden castle, erected based on materials obtained from archaeological digs. It is a version of the Uldevena residence.

About the Castle

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.

Take a look at:

  • homes with small smoke rooms;
  • potters’ and blacksmiths’ workshops;
  • replicas of clothing.

Relax:

  • obtaining extensive information on life in ancient Latvia in the late Iron Age;
  • organizing an ancient Latvian wedding ritual;
  • celebrating anniversaries in the Castle;
  • eating sausages by the fire.
