Guided tours are an interesting and educational way of spending spare time. Ogre History and Art Museum offers specialist-guided excursions in the permanent exposition and exhibitions, and also around the centre of Ogre according to the visitor’s interests.
The beginnings of the once popular Ogre resort date back to 1861 when the railway line Riga – Dinaburga was opened. In 1930ies, while trying to recover after the damage of World War I, the resort started flourishing. Many buildings designed by popular architects were built, and an active cultural life began. The town and its surroundings tempted the holiday-makers with the picturesque landscapes and healthy environment. The walk in the town while listening to the stories about its history will let us get acquainted with a new view on it !
