Rezekne Castle Ruins

Description
From 9th to 13th centuries the embattled castle of ancient Latgalians was on the banks of the river. In 1285 the Rossiten castle was built by German holder of the order Wilhelm from Shurborg as the residence of the “Fogt” of Livonian order. Today the castle hill is the most remarkable and most visited place in Rezekne. The marvellous sight to the centre of the city and to the trading part of the city is opened from the hill. In the beginning of 2003 the model of Rezekne castle was placed in the territory of SIA “Rēzeknes Ūdens” near the castle hill. The author of the model is Edmunds Smans, the teacher from Rezekne Vocational Secondary School no.14. It was placed there by the support of the public organization “Latvia History Park”. The model is open for public only in the tourism season – from April to October.
