It is a nice, safe and sportive place, with an incredible number of sports facilities all year around.
In the eyes of visitors the city seems special due to its picturesque landscape. Interestingly enough, Madona is one of the highest places in Latvia – it is located 122-193 meters above sea level.
Madona is also one of the most popular winter recreational regions in Latvia, thus we have a saying that Madona is the winter capital of Latvia. That is based on both hilly terrain and natural steadiness of snow. During winters snow in Madona is deeper and remains one month longer than elsewhere in Latvia.
