  • Very beautiful place lots of history around.
  • Its always good to have a walk especially if you have the chance to see different animals up close
  • Incredible trails in nature or walks in small authentic towns
  • One of the most beautiful place. Especially in golden autumn. One of the place you Must to visit in Latvia.
  • Beatiful nature. Sigulda Is quite crowded. Everything looks very touristic. Some prices are too high but it is possible to find nice And not expensive places. I recomend this location for one day trip.
