The castle came under siege by Ivan the Terrible in 1577 and instead of being taken prisoner, several hundred townsfolk sheltering in the castle blew themselves up with gunpowder.

Cesis was a small country town with a dramatic old castle from the 14th C. We camped about 4 km out of the town in a lovely campground on a river, with white sand beaches… and a million mosquitoes! Luckily the van kept most of them out, and we had insect repellant which held the dozens that did manage to get in, at ...
