I am a new one, but visitors see me as a hospitable host who shows them all the beauties of nature, and there is a lot to see! Over the tops of old oak trees I have a wonderful opportunity to have a view of Korneti valley with several lakes. I like to see the farmers bustling in their farms and fields. The piece of Korneti valley is protected by Meduskalns, Leģenu Hill and Dzērves Hill, the latter of which is my home. The yellow building between two lakes is the municipality house. Next to me there is the mighty Drusku Castle Mound. Maybe, it is a little jealous because it was the main place from which to see the landscape when I was not here. And Munamägi Hill nearby waves its hand wishing me good luck.
