Webcam description

Krustpils Castle (German:Kreutzburg) is a castle in Jēkabpils, Latvia. It is one of the best preserved medieval castles in Latvia. At the time of the Russo-Turkish War from 1877 to 1878, there was a camp for Turkish prisoners of war, many of whom settled here permanently. Here the Latgale artillery regiment was located. During the Second World War infirmary of the German army was located here. The Military hospital of the Red Army was placed here after August 1944

In the native language of the webcam owner
Krustpils pils jeb Krusta pils ir viduslaiku pils Daugavas labajā krastā Jēkabpilī. 13. gadsimtā tā bija vienīgā Rīgas arhibīskapam piederošā mūra pils (Kreutzburg) tagadējās Latgales teritorijā. Pils atradās stratēģiski svarīgā vietā pie Rīgas-Daugavpils-Polockas ceļa un pie Daugavas brasla, tāpēc tā bija par biežu strīdu iemeslu starp arhibīskapu un Livonijas ordeni. 16. gadsimtā pili ieguva Korfu dzimta un mantoja līdz pat 20. gs. sākumam. Vēlāk tajā tika izvietotas Latvijas Republikas un PSRS karaspēka daļas. Kopš 1996. gada Krustpils pilī atrodas Jēkabpils Vēstures muzejs. Pils adrese ir Rīgas iela 216b
