Welcome to Jaunpils


For four centuries until the breakup of the Russian empire in 1917, it was the home of the German baron family von der Recke. Its walls remember a sword fight between Mathias von der Recke and Swedish king Charles IX. It was a friendly one, apparently, for which the king awarded the baron with a silver helmet and a sword.
