A visit to Sigulda shows the stunning nature of Gauja National Park
Sigulda is peaceful town located in the largest national park in Latvia and dotted with manor houses, castle ruins, caves and other sites of interest. Its position on steep valley of the Gauja river has lead to it being dubbed the “Switzerland of Latvia”. This is maybe one of the most beautiful towns in Latvia, being full of life in spring, when the cherry trees blossom, and ‘golden’ autumn, when the leaves of the trees change colour in dramatic fashion.
