Zvārtava Castle

Zvartava Castle is one of the few complex samples of neo-Gothic interiors in Latvia. The castle is a two-storey limestone walled building, it is spartan and pompous and it has a polygon shaped tower on the main façade.

The facade is decorated with a red-brick finish. The castle is surrounded by a park with a terrace with a view to the lake. The masters’ house was built in 1881 and it is in the style of Tudor neo-Gothic. The architectural-artistic arrangement of Zvartava Castle does not conform any more to the language of the Tudor neo-Gothic forms of the 1930s-60s century. It is original and expresses local views on the understanding of the style of the past.  Interior decoration has partly remained.

Various international workshops for artists, exhibitions and other interesting events take place in Zvartava. There is a hotel in the castle where all tourists are welcomed. Nature, beautiful Zvartava lake, the possibility to go for a ride in boats that can be rented at the bank of the lake, walk around the castle park – it is a great possibility to take a rest from the everyday rush and troubles and enjoy a romantic rest.
