St. bridget convent ruins

The monastery was founded in 1407 and was the largest in Old Livonia. The monastery came under the Swedish monasteries order which had its centre in Vadstena. It was in use for nearly 170 years, before it was destroyed by the Russian Tsar Ivan the Terrible during the Livonian War.
