“Truly Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

My first trip to Latvia included a visit with family members to Sigulda and the Gauja Valley. The castle walls tell a story being about 5 metres thick. The castle is being rebuilt and once completed will be testimony to the history of the area. In Autumn the view of the valley is splendid with the autum colours everywhere.
