Krimulda Manor was built around 1822 in the classic style. Gutman's Cave is the biggest cave in Baltic and also the oldest tourist attraction of Latvia. This cave is unique with ancient inscriptions on the walls, which have been left there by ancient travelers. Gauja National Park was established to protect Gutman's Cave and many more impressive sandstone outcrops. It is the oldest national park in Latvia and the largest in Baltic countries. Sigulda Castle Museum was built in 1207 as castellum type fortress and later on rebuilt into convent type building.
