Historical sites

Interesting things have happened during various eras and in various locations in Baltia region. There is evidence of human activity in the settlements of ancient tribes, locations of battles on castle hills, the estates of members of the Holy Crusade and subsequent barons, proud walls built on farms during Latvia’s first period of independence, as well as various surprises related to collective farms and the Soviet era.  Here you will find information about popular and oft-visited tourist destinations, as well as little known and non-traditional ones which are of greater or lesser importance in our history.
