With almost half of its territory covered in dense forest, Gauja National Park features a landscape dominated by the Gauja River and a range of historical monuments. Spread over 91,745 hectares (226,707 acres), the park was established to protect the environment and provide a nature retreat. You can encounter almost 900 plant and 200 animal species at the site, as well as over 500 monuments and a plethora of nature trails. Look for forts, castles, and windmills related to folk tales and legends hidden among the wilderness away from hotels and busy streets. See https://www.entergauja.com/lv/ for more.
