    In the first moment, the castle looks perhaps somewhat unspectacular, the attraction shows up but when it climbs the Tower (stairs or elevator). From there one has a beautiful view of the surroundings. Really worth seeing! The €2 entry should one be worth the visit. Also the signage that explains the rebuilding is well done. Directly in front of the entrance to the stairway, which leads to the other side of the river begins. When you're in Sigulda, definitely worth the visit!

    The entrance is €2. They are ruins which is the best preserved has the door and its mechanism of opening and closing, with very nice views towards the other two castles in the area, apart have as added a medieval crossbow without over shooting area cost that gives you an extra point to stop

    Rode specially from Riga to visit the castles of Sigulda. New Castle together with garden is under construction and it is not known when starting out. And the old Castle ... ruins restored only one tower and a piece of the wall. Inside the Tower there is nothing but a wooden ladder and viewing platforms. The most beautiful views in the Castle area. In the Castle courtyard in the evenings, concerts are held from time to time. But to get on them, you need to either live in Sigulda, or come by car. In general I would especially for the sake of castles in Sigulda not rode.
