Located a 5 minute drive out of Sigulda, it's quite an extensive complex with some interesting exhibits and stunning views from the top of the round turret over the surrounding countryside. The only downside was that in early spring, about half the exhibits ( and...More

The castle isn’t extremely impressive but the historical exhibition is insightful. The grounds surrounding the castle are pretty. The site was made more charming perhaps by the blanket of snow covering everything.

The access is free of charge, including the tower with a fantastic view, and a museum. The castle itself is beautiful and there are opportunities of nice hikes around. This is THE thing to do around Sigulda.

The area is beautifully amazing. The snow is pristine, photos are picturesque and the view from the castle was well worth the 100 or so stairs I had to claim in very cramped stairwells. They hadn't gritted and were basically shovelling snow leaving an underlayer...More

Beautiful grounds, not too big, not too small. The snow covering made it magical. The museum in the rebuilt castle is very well presented with texts easily readable in 4 languages. Again, not too big, not too small.

Look for my review from January 11, I uploaded photos of buses to/from the castle. Sigulda and Turaida castle are near each other, but the buses are few and far between, otherwise it's a long walk, although a pleasant one I... More
