Former Ogre Sanatorium



Located in Ogre at 2/6 Gaismas prospekts, the former Ogre Sanatorium is an architectural monument of national significance adorned by an important art monument: murals by the famous Latvian painter Ansis Cīrulis. The sanatorium became the property of the Ogre municipality local government in late 2015. In 2014, an architectural and artistic inventory of the building was carried out, recognising the premises as authentic enough to justify the restoration of both Cīrulis’ murals and other wall paintings, as well as to restore the building’s roof to prevent further damage to the artwork. The building was used as the Rehabilitation Unit of the Children’s Clinical University Hospital until 2014. It is currently unused and unoccupied.


Improvements made within the project

Ogre Municipality renovated the former Ogre Sanatorium as part of a European Regional Development Fund project. The project renovated the building’s roof and restored and constructed the horizontal and vertical waterproofing of the building’s foundations. Extensive works in the Great Hall renovated the stoves, the flooring, the plastering and the paint job on the walls and ceilings, as well as restored the intricate artworks by A. Cīrulis. The murals on the sanatorium’s ceilings were restored by the municipality outside this project.

The project also developed several new services: educational events in the Ogre Blue Hills Nature Park, a visit to – or a tour of – the Ogre Sanatorium and A. Cīrulis’ murals.

ERDF funding – EUR 250,000

state budget grant – EUR 11,029.41
