Sigulda the city 53 KM from Riga (pictures and movies)

hello, I traveled to Sigulda some days ago and took many pictures and movie of this amazing place

if you are a fan of nature and country side view than I very much recommend on visiting this city.

I also invite people to see pictures and movies that I made in Sigulda here: playriga.com/index/outside-of-riga/sigulda

enjoy your trip to Sigulda :)

b.t.w there are many mosquitoes there, one person told me that Sigulda is considered the "capital city of mosquitoes" :)

I try to find something that can help against them since these mosquitoes are very annoying while you travel and try to enjoy the country side, until now I did not find anything that can protect against them... I tried 2 products and they did not work... more information in the page above...

I'd appreciate it if somebody can tell me what is good to use in order to be protected from them, and also something that I can buy in Latvia

Yes can only agree that Sigulda is worth a day visit - the forrest with river and ofcourse the old templar castle ruins with a beautiful view over the river vally!

But also the big Gutmanis Cave (with the legend of Maija) is a point to see.

About mosquitos...they just like some people better than other - I found out (from Turkey) that eating a lot of garlic keep the most of them away ;)

you can also rent a tent ( and other camping supplies like boats, etc), so you don't have to take it back with you. there are a couple of companies that do tht in Riga. one is on Tallinas street. I can find their contacts if you need tht, they don't have a website though.
