The guide books call Sigulda ‘the Switzerland of Latvia’ and expound the way its naturally beautiful assets have been mirrored and incorporated into the city’s design. Snowy, ski-friendly alps, medieval era castles, alpine caves as well as colourful local traditions and a recent interest in extreme sports set the scene around this spot on the Gauja Valley.
