IntSaab2018 will take place from 10th to 12th of August 2018 at leisure centre “Ratnieki” which is located 12.5 km away from town Sigulda (57 km from capital Riga).

Leisure centre “Ratnieki” is a monument of cultural heritage, related to the one of the most outstanding representatives of the industrial heritage of the first independence of Latvia - the owner and director of textile factory “Rigas audums”, the mecenate of University of Latvia -  Roberts Hiršs (1895 - 1972). The leisure centre can accommodate in good comfort up to 140 guests. More information about leisure centre “Ratnieki” you can find here: http://www.ratnieki.lv/eng/.  

Sigulda acquired town rights only in 1928, but the story of Sigulda as a settlement started in the beginning of 13th century. Sigulda is the Latvian capital of winter sports and there is even a bobsleigh and luge track in the town. There are many hotels and guest houses in Sigulda and in the area nearby. More about Sigulda you can find here: http://tourism.sigulda.lv/.
