"three castles route" Sigulda Things to Do Tip by renatob

Sigulda Things to Do: 71 reviews and 143 photos

Needless to say, once you are in sigulda this is the thing to do. It s an easy day trip from riga, as long as you get down at the right train station.....,1 hour by train.I enjoyed a lot the walk through the forest and the castles were really interesting.Unfortunately I spent half of the day walking from egulpe, the train stop before sigulda, to sigulda itself, even though this misadventure gave the me chance to see a village in the middle of nowhere, still not colonized by tourism.A great opportunity to meet locals and see the way people live in the latvian countryside.Defintely an off the beaten path destination, if you decide to visit it s 55 minutes train from riga, and the walk from there to sigulda it s about 15ks, part into a forest , the other less interesting ....on the highway.(however i m sure there is way through the forest)
