Cesis is a town in Latvia located in the northern part of the Vidzeme Central upland.
Cesis is on the Gauja River valley, and is built on a series of ridges above the river overlooking the "blue woods" below. It is the capital of Cesis County.

Population there is about 18000 people.

The planning of the town of Cçsis was done in the second half of the 13th century. The market place with a church was in the centre of the town. The centre of housing was the stone castle of the Livonian Order with its three fortified towers.

When you moving by car in Latvia, take a break in Cesis.
You can visit the medieval castle, St.John's church or just walk in the parks.
I think you can spend the pleasurable time in this town
