TĒRVETE WOODEN CASTLE OF 12TH CENTURY

Historic sites

To sense the presence of the mighty Semigallians and their kings, we invite you to visit the wooden castle in Tērvete. Built according to archaeological research materials, it is a real-life version of a 12th century Semigallian fortification on the nearby Tērvete Hillfort. There, you will find the largest collection in the Baltics of the Semigallian heritage dating back to the Iron Age: Semigallian jewellery, armour, household and everyday items. Guided tours about the history of Semigallians and Tērvete Castle are subject to prior booking. On the second weekend of August, the castle welcomes the annual Semigallian festival.
