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.

- homes with small smoke rooms;
- potters’ and blacksmiths’ workshops;
- replicas of clothing.
- obtaining extensive information on life in ancient Latvia in the late Iron Age;
