Dating back to the 13th century, Livonian Order Sigulda Castle was originally built by the Livonian Brothers of the Sword, a military order comprised of German “warrior monks.” The first stone fortification built in Latvia outside of Riga, it was designed to monitor the Gauja River running below the castle and to protect from the threat of invasion. The original castle building was rectangular shaped and made of dolomite blocks three meters thick, a small part of which still remains. In later years, a square shaped central column with an inner courtyard surrounded by three buildings was added. A three story high section of the central building remains today. In the 19th century, the ruins were fortified and two pseudo-gothic arches were added, together with a front gate.

Over the centuries, the castle changed hands numerous times and went through several stages of repair and restoration. It was reopened to visitors in 2012 and today it is possible to climb the North Tower and the Main Gate Tower. In the summer, the castle hosts performances and visitors can try their hands at archery.

2 in 1: Sigulda and Jūrmala in a single daytrip (All Inclusive)

2 in 1: Sigulda and Jūrmala in a single daytrip (All Inclusive)

Sigulda and Jurmala are by far the most popular daytrip destinations from Riga, but most of the people come here for such a short time that they have to choose just one. We have decided to help out people who are having hard time choosing and provide both of them in a single day. Yes, the tour will be longer and yes, you'll have less time in each of the places, but won't have to sacrifice two whole days to see two cities. To make it more efficient we have also included lunch and wine tasting in the itinerary and price, so you won't have to worry about that kind of thing. On this tour you'll have a guided tour around the most important sights of both Jurmala and Sigulda, enjoy a short and easy hike in a National Park, ride the famous Gauja Valley Cable Car and top it all off with a wine tasting at a local winemakers. Please check the full itinerary for details. This tour is highly customisable - just let us know what are your priorities and we'll adjust the plan according to your needs.
