Sigulda

If you wish to be carried away by history, Sigulda is the right place. Since the time when the tribes of Balts and Livs fought with the German crusaders, Sigulda has boasted of exciting legends and mighty castles, which are situated in the distance of a cannon shot from each other.

Sigulda offers breathtaking mountain slopes for those seeking adrenaline. Sigulda pleases with long exciting journeys into the past. Sigulda plays emotionally exciting musical events for different tastes. Situated on both banks of the ancient valley of the Gauja River, Sigulda is one of the most beautiful cities in Latvia.

Three medieval castles and picturesque landscape down the slopes of the Primeval valley of the Gauja River have inspired people to go and see the beauty with their own eyes for more than two centuries. Sigulda takes pride in its original guestbook – Gutman’s Cave (Gūtmaņala) which holds names of its guests.

A great part of Sigulda area includes the Gauja National Park. It was established in 1973 in order to protect the flora and fauna biodiversity. If you want to get closer to nature, the Gauja National Park offers exciting routes with a variety of travelling modes. You can go walking, you can ride a bike, and you can choose the boat or go for a Nordic walk and discover the best sights.

For extreme and adrenaline seakers Sigulda offers unique possibility to ride a real bobsled, fly with no strings attached at Aerodium vertical wind tunel and do a bungee jumping out of the Cable car.

Sigulda’s name has for years been associated with the feeling of comfort - both the brisk fresh air of the Gauja riverside and natural resources heal here. Nothing inspires more for a new session of work than a proper all day long walk! Choose the more appropriate one for you: www.tourism.sigulda.lv
