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

The cave is high but not very deep, so you can explore it in a pretty short amount of time. The interesting part is the countless inscriptions on the cave walls, some of which date back to the 17th century. The cave can be reached...More

Visited here as part of a Saga cruise trip, one of the most disappointing locations. The cave is more of a hollow in the hillside.

We stopped here on the way to the Turaides castle - it is a simple grotto with a spring at the back and etchings in the walls from the past few hundred years. It is not a big attraction but is worth the few minutes...More

Cave is located in a nice park. In the cave there is a spring which ends in a nice Pond. In the cave there are Graved names and pictures. The oldest is from 18 century.

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

Along my walk from Krimulda to Turaida castle, I past this cave, probably as well known for the associated love legend, as for the actual cave. The cave, or at least the part that one can see, is not particularly large or impressive. However, what...More

It is a lovely cave. You can taste the water and look at the 19th and early 20th century graffiti. That;s about it.
