Engelu alaCaves of Latvia


There is a beautiful place on the coast of the river Salaca called Skanaiskalns (‘loud hill’).

Engelu ala (`Angel`s cave`) has a gothic shape.


Skanakalna klints
Skabumballas ala

There is a small springhead in the cave, and everybody should taste its water. If it`s sour then today`s good thoughts will fill.

Velna ala (`Devil`s cave`) = Čertová jeskyně.
- 14 m; the shape of bottle.
Nachází se osm metrů nad úrovní vody řeky Gauja – ve skále z vápence 250 metrů vysoké. Výška jeskyně, která byla 10 metrů, byla v roce 1992 zvětšena do výšky cca 40 m – to udělalo Bílé bratrství, které hledalo v jeskyni svůj skrytý chrám. Bylo zjištěno, že jeskyně má mnoho pokračování.

Podle legendy Čertová jeskyně má takový název proto, že jednou, když čert byl podle Gauje, uslyšel kohouta a skryl se v této jeskyni. Seděl tam a strašil lidí přes díry jeskyně. A od jeho dýchání se stěny jeskyně zčernaly.

Gutmana ala = Jeskyně Gutmanisa

Je největší jeskyní v Lotyšsku. 500 mł, délka – 18,8 metrů, šířka – 12 m, maximální výška – 10 m. V této jeskyni je pramen.
Podle jedné z mnohých legend o této jeskyni vůdce národu Livů Rindaugs přikázal svou nevěrnou ženu zakopat v břehu řeky Gauja. A z jejích slz vznikl proud. Později jeden básník, jehož lidé označili za dobrého člověka (v němečtině “guter Mann”
-> Gutmanis), dával churavým lidem kouzelní léčební vodu z tohoto proudu.

Viktora ala = Jeskyně Viktora

Je vlastně jen výklenek. Je výše a napravo od jeskyně Gutmana. Podle legendy tuto jeskyni udělal ve skále zahradník Viktor Heil (hrdina ze známé lotyšské legendy) a to pro svou nevěstu Maiju (její legendární jméno je Růže z Turaidy) aby se z jeskyně mohla dívat na zahrady Siguldy, kde pracoval.
