Immerse yourself in the natural, cultural, and historical heritage of Cesis and Sigulda on a day trip from Riga with hotel transfers included. Visit the Cesis Castle ruins, the Old Town, Ungurmuiža Manor, Gutman's Cave, and Sigulda Castle. After a hotel pickup, start your day with a visit to Cesis Castle, one of the best-preserved medieval castles in the Baltic States, where more than ten centuries of Latvian cultural history meet. Soak in the historic ambience with authentic candle lamps lighting up the castle. Listen to the castle gardener Līga share what can be found in the garden – the same vegetables and herbs that grew the Livonian gardens 500 years ago. In summer, watch craftsmen display their skills in workshops, processing stone, metal, and clay, weaving ropes, and printing using early techniques. Then, dive into the Old Town’s cultural and historical heritage by exploring the remaining street network, masonry, ancient manors, and wooden villas built on the banks of river Gauja. On way to your next destination, stop at Ergļu klintis (Eagle Cliff), a sandstone outcrop on the banks of the Gauja River. Continue to Ungurmuiža Manor House, the only wooden baroque building of 18th-century Latvia that has survived to the present day. Walk around the park, Tea House, and Children's House while hearing stories about Baron Campenhausen. On your way back, stop in Sigulda, a town known in the heart of the picturesque Gauja River Valley. Explore Gutman's Cave, the widest and highest cave in the Baltic countries. Continue to the romantic ruins of Sigulda Castle, which has been a popular meeting place for lovers since the 18th century. Stop by the Sigulda New Castle, the summer residence of Prince Kropotkin, which is an architectural monument of national significance, which has retained its Neo-Gothic style and a luxurious interior.
