Līdz 1917.gadam seit atradās Valmieras skolotāju seminārs, kuru beigusi 520 audzekņi, no 1920.gada - Valmieras Valsts ģimnāzija. Skola strādājusas un absolvējusas vairākas izcilas personības, piemēram, seit mācījies gleznotājs G. Klucis, rakstnieks L. Paegle u.c. Ēkas veidols no putna lidojuma atgādina burtu E, simbolizējot vardu "Evaņģēlijs". Kādreiz ēkai bijis ari kupols ka baznīcai. Ģimnāzijas teritorijā atrodas izstāžu galerija "Ledus pagrabs", kur apskatāmas dažādas tematiskas izstādes, kā arī izveidots skulptūru parks.

Šis slēpnis ir arī daļa no tūrisma akcijas "Simtgades dārgumi". Valmieras Tūrisma informācijas centrs sadarbībā ar Kocēnu, Burtnieku un Beverīnas novadiem aicina piedalīties tūrisma akcijā „Simtgades dārgumi”! Tuvojoties Latvijas simtajai gadskārtai, aicinām ceļot Valmieras pusē un meklēt apslēptos dārgumus īpašos slēpņos, kas rodami kā spēka vārdi sev ikdienā un Latvijai tās nākamajai simtgadei.

[ENG] The building of the Valmiera State Gymnasium was built from 1902 until 1903 (architect Aleksejs Kīzelbašs). Until 1917 it accommodated the Teachers’ Seminary, but since 1920 it is used by the Valmiera State Gymnasium. Many great and famous persons either have worked or studied here, e.g., painter G. Klucis, writer L. Paegle and others. In older times the building had an onion shape dome in the middle, typical to orthodox churches, and it has a shape of the letter "E" when viewed from above, which some associate with the word "Evangel". Next to the school building an art gallery "Ledus pagrabs" offering various thematic art exhibitions and a garden of sculptures is located.

This cache is also part of tourism campaign “Centennial treasures”. As Latvia’s centennial is approaching, Valmiera Tourist Information Centre in cooperation with Kocēni, Burtnieki and Beverīna Municipalities invite you to travel around Valmiera and its vicinity, in search for the hidden treasures.
