The Gutman's Cave, a sandstone attraction, which preserves some 17th-century inscriptions on its walls.

During the trip between the Sigulda castle and Turaida castle I visited small Cave In the valley, full of graffiti from XVIII/XIX. On the path towards to Cave you can find small stales with local souvenirs and food products.

Don't expect an underground cave. It's more of a hollow in a rock. It actually started forming over 10000 years ago when melt water eroded the sandstone rock after the Ice Age! The inscriptions from the 17th century are interesting as are the folklore tales...More

This ‘cave’ was named after a healer who used its spring waters as a cure. You really can’t go very far into the cave, but seeing all the graffiti carvings into the sandstone. Now that the cave is in the Nat’l Park, no one is...More

You have to do a lot of stairs to get there, and it looks promising from far away, but it’s literally just a 10 meter hole in a rock. You do get some fresh water straight from the source so that’s nice.

This cave is associated with a cute folklore story. But aside from that the cave is interesting, covered with intricate very old carved graffiti. It is located opposite the visitors centre
