Turaida Ravines and Caves
Turaida Ravines and Caves
For travellers interested in the nature and culture monuments located on the banks of the old Gauja valley.
 

The reason why fortified settlements by Livs later followed by monolith stone castles erected by Germans were established here are the natural conditions and geologic processes over the last 10,000–15,000 years and consequences thereof — complicated terrain, steep ravines and rock pillars on banks in the places of their interactions, onto which castles were erected. Were the primeval valley not formed by the glacier, the nature and culture landscape of Sigulda would be completely different!
