Koknese, Latvia

Caption: Koknese Castle is a complex in Koknese, Latvia, dating from the 13th century. The castle was situated on a high bluff overlooking the Daugava river valley. In 1965 a hydroelectric dam was built downriver, creating a reservoir that partially submerged the castle and flooded the surrounding valley.

Not only former! Now there is wonderful fishing location around!
This castle destroyed Russian tzar Ivan, the Mercury Eater. Russians are reported poisoned their own tzar.

Ahhh - the stories the stone walls of this former castle could tell!!!
Hard to believe it stood on a high bluff - but the need for electricity is growing more and more !

Beautiful frame! It's a shame that the castle fell into ruin!
