Video about Ogre municipality

The Ogre municipality tourist information centre has created a video about the values of Ogre municipality nature, historical heritage, active recreation and entertainment opportunities.

In the middle of Latvia near its capital city Riga lies Ogre Municipality. There is nature arround every corner. And people love to engage in sporting activities and explore new horizons. Ogre Municipality is place, where meet someone. Maybe that one casual encounter will lead to unexpected adventures. Ogre Municipality boasts the pine-surrounded and well-kept city of Ogre, where modern technologies are widely used for the convenience of residents and visitors. Lielvārde town is known throughout Latvia for its rich cultural heritage, which can be explored in the Andrejs Pumpurs’ Lielvārde Museum and the Lielvārde Park with the ruins of a medieval castle, whereas the name of Ikšķile associates with the beginnings of Christianity in Latvia - the ruins of the oldest stone building in the Baltics can still be seen on St. Meinard’s Island. Ķegums, in its turn, is connected with the beginnings of Latvia's unified electricity supply. A visit to the Energy Museum will provide anyone with new knowledge about the history and development of Latvia's energy sector. But the rural territory of Ogre Municipality with its beautiful landscapes, diverse forests, vast meadows and the meanders of the Ogre River attracts nature lovers. Who knows – maybe one day this becomes a place for a fresh start.
