The castle in Põltsamaa was founded by the Livonian Order in 1272 as a defensive fortress. During the Livonian War it was for a period occupied by Polish troops and from 1570 to 1578 served as official residence of Duke Magnus of Holstein. Recent renovation at Põltsamaa Castle also involved archaeological studies of the castle area. On 17 June archaeologists will talk about their recent discoveries.
