You are here


Less than an hour’s drive from Riga, Sigulda is the perfect antidote to big city bustle. Stunning scenery, ancient castles and incredible adventures await you in this natural wonderland.

Stunning scenery and history

For centuries, painters, poets and lovers have found inspiration amidst the lovely landscapes of Sigulda, and visitors continue to embrace this exceptionally beautiful part of Latvia today.

Overlooking the picturesque Gauja River in the majestic Gauja National Park, Sigulda’s forested valleys are steeped in myths and legends.

They are a treat for the eyes in all seasons, especially the autumn when the leaves blaze gold and red.


Sigulda also offers fascinating glimpses into life in medieval Europe.

Travel back to the past with a visit to Turaida Museum Reserve, home to impressive Turaida Castle as well as Folk Song Hill, a symbol of Latvia’s rich musical heritage where timeless pagan ceremonies are held.

Or take in the poetic ruins of Sigulda Castle across the valley and the imposing 19th century New Castle next door.

Bungee jump from a spectacular location, slide down in a real bobsleigh, fly in a wind tunnel or conquer a treetop obstacle course at the Tarzāns and Mežakaķis playgrounds in the sky.

If that’s not your speed, enjoy spectacular views and fresh air along miles of hiking trails and bike trails.
