Until the middle of the 20th century, steam locomotives dominated railway traffic and needed water to run. Therefore, the largest railway stations had to have a water tower, which is an integral architectural accent in the overall picture of the station.

When steam locomotives were replaced by more modern ones - diesel and electric locomotives - the need for water towers near railway stations was no longer so important and they acquired other functions.

Work on the reconstruction of the Sigulda railway water tower was started in the summer of 2005, and on April 19, 2009, the Sigulda Culture and Art Space "Sigulda Tower" was opened.

On April 19, 2009, Sigulda Culture and Art Space "Sigulda Tower" was opened,

"We want to give people beautiful things. If we manage to bring Sigulda society closer to cultural and soulful values with this unique space and its aura, then it will not be a waste of work for a second."

- such was the vision of the two mistresses of the Cultural and Arts Space, Liga Adamsone and Ligita Zilgalve.
