Riga, Latvia

Turaida Museum Reserve is a cultural landmark with special protection status. The Museum Reserve contains a medieval castle, a church, a manor, the Dainas Hill and the monument to the Rose of Turaida.

 

Turaida Museum Reserve is located 50 km from Riga and is known for its beautiful surroundings and history. The name Turaida means “God’s garden” in the language of the ancient inhabitants, the Livonians. In 1996, the museum was named one of the European Museums of the Year. When viewed from a hot-air balloon or the opposite bank of the Gauja on an autumn evening, Turaida castle rises above the green foliage like an imposing ship built out of red brick.
