"Talsi – well preserved town" Talsi by js77

Talsi Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 16 photos

It looks like Talsi has escaped the destiny of some other Latvian towns – it was not destroyed during WWII. Largest part of town looks the same as it looked some 50-100 years ago. So, the main attraction probably is simply to walk around and explore small Latvian town with some history. In medieval times there was a wooden castle of Curonians (one of Baltic tribes which later formed Latvian nation). Of course, no parts of castle has remained. Most likely in 14th century Livonian Order (German knights - crusaders) built their catsle (from rocks not wood) there which also has not remained in any form of ruins. This town can be nice off the beaten track stop if you are heading for Kolka or Mazirbe.
