Water tower
The water tower (built in 1951) was aimed to supply water to steam locomotives to enable their operation and further journey after the travellers from Riga and other places had visited Sigulda. After the era of steam locomotive had ended, the tower stood unused for a long time, until it was finally transformed into the Sigulda Cultural and Art Room “Sigulda Tower”. Ground floor exhibits photos and information of its history, while the top floors exhibit artworks taking the visitors to the 5th floor where a lounge is established. From here, similar as from the top of Turaida castle tower, visitors may enjoy the panoramic view over Sigulda.
