The exterior of the New Castle of Sigulda built by the Knyaz Kropotkin family in 1878 has retained its neo-Gothic style, meanwhile its interior became a pearl of national romanticism in 1937, when it hosted the Latvian Union of Writers and Journalists.
Nowadays, the castle district buildings host workshops and salons of craftsmen and artists, where new skills can be learnt, and souvenirs can be purchased.
