A souvenir typical for Sigulda is a stick that became popular more than 200 years ago. Scenic banks of the River Gauja primeval valley and romantic medieval castle mould in Sigulda, Turaida and Krimulda incites people’s interest to visit those places. When Riga – Valka railway route was opened in 1889, the number of visitors gradually increased. Expanding popularity of Sigulda and its surroundings stimulated also the developing and extension of activities connected with tourism. Manors owners opened new stores, built hotels, rented or sold buildings and lands to the summer residents, set walking paths and bridges. Farmers offered tourists cabmen services but the sticks were sold to ease walking along the hills and paths of “Vidzeme Switzerland”. The photos of the first third period of the 20th century Sigulda visitors are seen with sticks everywhere – by the castle mould, by Sateseles castle mould, by Gūtmaņa Cave and other places.

Nowadays, the different size sticks typical for Sigulda are also sold in tourists popular places and it serves as a good helpmate while tracking long distances.
