A little bit overpriced but still fun to see. Enjoyed the nice scenery from the tower and inside the park territory.
Think about my advise, it is not worth to spend your time and money for this castle, choose some other castle! As an example, I can recommend you Cesis castle, it is much more authentic place. If you are castle fan and it is a must for you to visit every castle around then you will surely skip my advise... More
Great place to visit if you have the opportunity, it's a day trip out of Riga. It is about 90-120 minutes from Riga, depending on traffic. The castle is quite interesting, and the view from the tower is exceptional. There is a nice park, you could spend a few hours visiting and walking around the grounds. Coming from the 'new'... More
It's a great day out visiting Turaida castle because its not just you are visiting castle, there is a huge park around and if you fancy can do a walk through forest.

Castle is really in good shape (as You can see in the pictures inside - it was rebuilt and repair a little.... More
