The new project of Sigulda Area will be a regional map, which will also work as a "city card" - offering city guests the most popular tourism objects, attractions, accommodations, restaurants and other recreation possibilities.
At the moment 25 participants are involved in creation of the map - the memebrs of Sigulda Area Tourism Society, museum, hotels etc. Alltogether about 50 tourist attractions will have a discount.
This is not a one season campaign - in the future it is planned to develop and improve the idea.
The map "Sigulda stick" will be valid for 24 hours and it will be a ticket to various attractions, museum exhibitions and other tourist attraction places, giving discounts to numerous tourist attractions in Sigulda.
