Bauska Castle (Latvian: Bauskas pils; German: Schloss Bauske) is a complex consisting of the ruins of an earlier castle and a later palace on the outskirts of the Latvian city of Bauska.

  • Beautiful Castle and grounds. Loved the juxtaposition of the ruins and renovated sections together. Lovely walking paths all around with views of the rivers.
  • Very beautiful and historical place. Friendly staff, exciting museum exhibits. Must plan at least 1h for a visit.
