Riga castle on Pils square
The Riga Castle (Pils square 3). The former fortress of Livonian order’s grandmaster was started to be built in 1330. In 1484 the castle was destroyed, since then the original view of the castle has been changed several times. After several reconstructions the castle lost its medieval character to a considerable extent. In the times of Latvian independent State the castle was transformed into the State president’s residence and representation building.
