Built in 1330 as the headquarters of the grand master of the Livonian Order, this building has been much mutated over the years and now only looks properly castley from certain angles. It was badly damaged in a 2013 fire, but after a massive renovation it is once again the official residence of the Latvian president. Peer past the ceremonial guards out front for a peek at the inner sanctum.
