While walking in Cēsis we found the castle’s wall in backyard of some building. I asked my friend whether we could go to the backyard and photograph there. She said that we could. And it was good that she was with us. Without her I wouldn’t have dared to go to the yard :-)
This year we were visiting a friend of mine in Latvia. In a little town of Cēsis. The main sight there was the castle, but the church by the central square of course interested a photographer. So we went inside. My friend asked the church lady there whether we can photograph. She said of course, and consider donating some money if you feel so. That’s what we did then :)
On a side note we had to wait for our food for very long time in a restaurant. About 45 minutes. We ate lunch in a eatery next to the central square. And it was a long wait. My friend told us in Baltic countries they sometimes make customers wait. Sounds rude to me. On the other hand, it might make the meal taste better ;)
It’s Cēsis Castle. I guess it is the Cēsis’ biggest tourist attraction. It was once a great castle of Baltic states but was destroyed in a war. Now it’s just ruins, but cool nonetheless. Local friend was guiding us there and telling about the castle. Thanks to her!
