A history lover with a vivid imagination may find a visit to the Vilaka castle Ruins to be a romantic adventure. According to a popular legend in Latgale, the castle was built on a large island in Lake Vilaka by Marija, one of the three daughters of the ruler of Makonkalns (Volkenberga) Castle. Her name is the root of the ancient name of Vilaka - Marienhauza. However, historical facts point in another direction: in 1293 Archbishop Johann de Fehte built a fortified cloister on the island which he named Marienhauza. Between 1509 and 1916, when the cloister was on the brink of collapse, Archbishop Jaspers Linde built a strong stone castle in its place to protect the eastern border of Livonia. To avert Russian aggression, in 1559 Archbishop Vilhelms mortgaged a large part of his state (Livonia australis) including Vilaka to the Polish King Sigismund II Augustus. However, the Polish garrison which had protected Vilaka Castle since 1560 was unable to repel attacks by the forces of Ivan the Terrible in 1577. The castle, severely damaged by the Russians, was soon regained by Polish King Stephen Batory who started rebuilding it, but in 1582 Vilaka was taken by the Swedes and the castle was damaged again.
