Ogre sightseeing. Driving through the Latvian countryside the guide will tell you about Latvia, its nature, life in the country, the habits of the Latvian people. We will stop at Ikšķile, St. Meinard‘s Island – the first holy place in the territory of Latvia, where the ruins of the first church can still be found.
Afterwards, we are going to “The Green Islands” – a village of new generation houses built according to the ecological construction concept. Next, the bus will drive through Ogre and you will see the contrasts of the town where 19th-century summer cottages stand side by side with buildings typical of the Soviet time. The tour will then proceed to Keguma Cross Hill. Healers believe it to be an ancient sacred site. It is one of the strongest cosmic energy points in Latvia where you will be able to charge your life with energy.
Once, the hill was a venue for the gatherings of Christians as there was no church in Ķegums. The first cross was installed on the hill-top on 20 July 1997. In the course of time, more crosses were placed on the hill, and now a cross procession is held there in June each year.
