The Latvians call Sigulda the Switzerland of Latvia, which is a slight exaggeration although it is very beautiful and well worth visiting in summer or winter.
The bobsleigh track is Olympic standard and is worth a trip just to see it. Much better though is to go on a Saturday and actually go down the track. In summer they have a wheeled bobsleigh with a driver, and in winter they have a padded one (for visitors!) which goes on the ice.
About one hours drive from Riga - get on to Brivibas and just follow the road.
Also, there is a train direct from Riga.
The bobsleigh track is walking distance from the station and well signposted.
