Bauska boasts two distinct but adjacent castles with panoramic views. It also serves as a comfortable base for regional adventures.

Bauska is a town in Bauska municipality, in the Zemgale region of southern Latvia. The town is situated at the confluence of the shallow rivers Musa and Memele where they form the Lielupe River.
