Dikļi is a place that has long occupied an important place in Latvian culture. It was here in the summer of 1864, in the park of Dikļu Pastor’s Manor that Reverend Juris Neikens, who was also a notable writer and teacher, organised the first joint-singing festival, laying the foundations for a unique Latvian tradition of song festivals. This was also the venue for the first theatrical performance in Latvian. Holding art and culture in honour and esteem, Dikļu Palace regularly hosts various cultural events, theatrical plays and concerts.

Over the course of time, Dikļu Palace has become even more imposing and colourful – from the 15th century when it was feudal land in the diocese of the Bishop of Riga and was known as Pāle Manor through to the present day when Dikļu neo-baroque palace’s hotel and fine restaurant are the ultimate destination for many organisers of celebrations and weddings.

In the Landscape Park, which stretches across the grounds of Dikļu Palace, one will find at least 20 exotic species of trees such as the balsam fir and white walnut. It is said that the Baron once laid down an oak floor at the bottom of the park pond so that one would not find oneself tramping through slime during a swim.

In Dikļu Church, which dates back to at least the start of the 17th century, one will find a unique altar and pulpit, which are decorated with woodcuttings in the mannerism style. These works of art, created in the then renowned Riga sculpture workshop, are still on view today.
