Overview

Castle Ruins, situated on the hill by the river are the reminders of the ancient fortified residence of ancient Latgalians which existed there from the 9th to 13th centuries. At the end of the 13th century Livonian castle was built (Rozitten castle). The castle was situated in a strategically important place, so the Russians, Lithuanians, Poles were seeking to conquer the castle, but it was completely destroyed during the Polish–Swedish war (1656–1660).

I enjoy history as much as the next tourist, but this is an attraction I would not go out of my way to see. If you are in Rezekne, you might as well check it out, but it won't take you more than 20 minutes....More

These ruins are the remnants of the Livonian Order castle in the city center. It's a good place for a walk. There is a beautiful view on Cathedral.

Nice view and very interesting building next to them. I recomment to visit with a guide. There was a smal handicraft shop about 500 m away, near Mara statue, this place was great. A lot of natural staff.
