Riga Castle

Riga Castle was built on the bank of the River Daugava in 1330 after the first castle of the Livonian Order in the center of Riga was destroyed during the Livonian Civil War from 1297 to 1330. The new castle served as the residence of the master of the order. The castle was destroyed again in 1484 during another civil war and was rebuilt from 1497 to 1515. The castle was continually renovated between the 17th and 19th centuries. The building has been very plain since the very beginning and is now built in the Neoclassical style. The castle now houses the residence of the President of Latvia and a museum.
