"Notch up yet another castle ... the 'new' castle" Sigulda Things to Do Tip by CatherineReichardt
Sigulda Things to Do: 74 reviews and 157 photos
It can get quite confusing keeping up with all the castles in Sigulda, and it is easy to get confused between the old castle and the medieval castle, both of which are in ruins.
So, take heart that the one Sigula castle that you don't stand a chance of getting confused with any of the others is the 'new' castle. This was built in the 19th century, and was formerly the residence of a Russian prince.
The castle is set amid lovely grounds and is architecturally a bit of a mongrel - but, like most mongrels, quite endearing. To my mind, the best bit is the massive Art Deco fireplace in the bar, which is over the top interior design on a monumental scale!
