Una delle poche fortificazioni storiche , faceva parte delle mura della città, risale al 1330. (ma ricostruita diverse volte) more »One of the few historical fortifications, was part of the city walls, dates back to 1330. (but rebuilt several times)
Много интерактива, столько разных стендов с информацией! Чем выше, тем интереснее. Послушать, посмотреть видео ролики тоже стоит! Музей бесплатный интересный, снаружи в башне видны застрявшие ядра. more »Many interactive, so many different stands with information! The higher the more interesting. Listen, watch the video clips too! The museum is free interesting, the outside in the tower are visible stuck cores.
If you are very interested to know the involvement of Latvia in the World War and also the military forces do put this place on your list. If you are also interested to see the weapons used and the army uniform of German Army and Russian army you can find them here. For PubG game players, you have a live example of the famous guns used in the game Kar98, M164A and DP-28 with various scopes.
Pretty nice museum in old town. Free entry. A lot stairs but also small elevator if you need.
