Geocache Description:


Šis ir Rujienas multi, Rujienas lepnums.

Rujiena ir pilseta, kas atrodas vistalak uz Latvijas ziemeliem. Pilsetu medz devet ari par vislatviskako pilsetu, jo 95% tas iedzivotaju ir latvieši. Savu nosaukumu Rujiena ieguvusi no pilsetai cauri tekošas Rujas upes, ta savukart, visticamak, no igaunu varda ruhi – sile, vienkocu laiva, jo Ruja senatne bijusi nozimigs Livonijas udenscelš, bet pats Rujienas novads ietilpis igaunu Sakalas valsti. Rujienas novadam ir sena un bagata vesture: jau senatne novads devets par Vidzemes maizes kleti, krievu knazi valkajuši prasmigo rujieniešu audeju austas dranas, te visagrak zemnieki sakuši iepirkt majas par dzimtu, te likts pamats Ziemellatvijas armijai. Pilsetas tiesibas Rujiena ieguva 1920.gada. Pašlaik tas platiba ir ap 7,8 km², un Rujiena dzivo ap 3700 iedzivotaju.

Rujiena lepojas ar trim Karla Zemdegas pieminekliem - "Talavas tauretaju", "Sejeju" un "Madonnu Orans". Par tiem tad ari šis slepnis!

1) Talavas tauretajs – atklats 1937.gada 15.augusta paša pilsetas centra, veidots Somijas granita un veltits Rujienas atbrivotajiem. Padomju gadus tas pardzivojis, pateicoties Rujienas telniekam Janim Zarinam, kurš, otrpus ielai uzstadidams savu veidoto Lenina telu, lika izveidot pamatigu paaugstinajumu, ta demonstredams, ka Tauretajs Leninu nenomaks.

Legendas ap šo pieminekli vijušas lidz pat musu dienam. 24 gadus jaunas skolotajas naves celonis ir iemesls vispardrošakajiem minejumiem un nostastiem, toskait romantiskai milestibas legendai skolotajas un macitaja Roberta Slokenberga starpa. Padomju gados, lai nebutu japiemin draudzes skola un macitajs, rodas jauna skulpturas interpretacija: ta veltita skolotajai, kura noslikusi, glabjot berninu.

This is the Rujiena’s multi cache, Pride of Rujiena.

Rujiena is a town that is farthest north in Latvia. 95% of its population is Latvians. Rujiena acquired its name from the Ruja river, probably from the Estonian word “ruhi” meaning “log boat”. Rujiena’s district has a long and rich history. As a town Rujiena was established in 1920. Currently its area is around 7.8 km ² and it has around 3,700 inhabitants.

Rujiena is proud of having three monuments made by Karlis Zemdega – "Talavas trumpeter ", "Sower" and "Madonna Oran”. This cache is about these three!

1) Talavas trumpeter – placed August 15, 1937 in the center of the town, dedicated to the liberators of Rujiena. It survived soviet years, thanks to local sculptor Janis Zarins, who set the image of Lenin on the other side of the street and showed that Lenin will not be surpassed by the trumpeter.

2) Sower – placed in 1939, dedicated to the Minister of Agriculture Arturs Alberings, who came from Rujiena. The monument represents young man – sower. One night in 1951 the monument was casted down and disappeared without a trace and later plaster pioneers replaced it. In the spring of 1977 the children found parts of this monument, missing only the sculpture's head. In August 1988 on the basis of people's talk, two divers found the head of sculpture in Ruja River near the center of the bridge. Since the 18th November 1988 "Sower" stands again in its place.

3) Madonna Oran – shows a young woman with a baby, placed in 1936, dedicated to school teacher Julija Skujina.

During Soviet times, not to mention school and church pastor, a new interpretation of the sculpture was introduced: its dedicated to the teacher who drowned while saving a baby.
