This route is one of the few in the world, the survey of which is open to anyone interested. On the sixth floor level visitors have a platform for an excellent view of the entire track from start to finish, as well as the Gauja valley scenic landscape.

 

Sigulda bobsleigh history started to form itself already in the 19th century, when grand duke Kropotkin built the first 900 meters long ice road with one curve. This artificial ice track in the first bobsleigh track in the Baltics. As the track was developing the first bobsleighs were imported from abroad and used as examples for local enthusiasts who began to build their own toboggans.

 

In 2009 artificial ice starting platform - one of the most sophisticated platforms of highest quality in the world, allowing the athletes to prepare for the contests better, was opened on the bobsled and luge track. Since 2010 Sigulda may call itself an Olympic city. People from Sigulda - luge racers Šici brothers and skeletonist Martins Dukurs won silver medals in Vancouver Olympic Games.
