The Vecogre Cemetery

Address Mazozoli parish, Ogre municipality
Description

The Vecogre cemetery was established more than 300 years ago after a church was built on the nearby Jānis's Hill. Ancient resting places of local families, tombstones of the 19th–20th centuries, 28 cast crosses, and the landlords’ graves are the noticeable objects at the cemetery. During the 1930s, a new cemetery was made on the southern side of the hill and has been used up to now.
