Gauja Nacionälais Parks Review

About one hour east of the capital, Gauja National Park is populated by friendly people and a helpful forestry staff. Latvia's deepest river valley, at 280 feet, is little more than a dip, but the gently flowing Gauja and the 13th-century ruins of Turaidas Pils (Turaida Castle), built by the Knights of the Sword, near Sigulda provide amusement, ancient graffiti, and a bobsled track.
