Welcome to Smiltene municipality!

Smiltene county is an active and energetic place. A place to live, work, build a family, study, play active sports and relax, nurture cultural traditions and develop business. Municipality was created on 1st of July, 2021, by merging the former counties of Smiltene, Ape and Rauna. It borders Valka, Valmiera, Cēsis, Alūksne, Gulbene counties and neighboring country Estonia. The total area of the county is 1800.55 square kilometers, and the population is approximately 18.8 thousand inhabitants.

Smiltene is an economically active and energetically vibrant county. Both internationally and regionally recognized merchants, as well as family businesses and home manufacturers find their place here. We value existing and support new entrepreneurs, we respect skilled workers in any industry. More than 1,000 companies are actively operating in the county, the most represented economical sectors are agriculture, forestry, woodworking, the service sector, road construction and food production, but the largest income for the county is brought directly by trade and logging.

It is provided by 20 educational institutions as close as possible to the place of residence. People have the opportunity to acquire new knowledge and skills throughout their life, the "Senior Academy" classes, as well as continuing education courses for adults, have gained the awareness and responsiveness of the population.

Cultural traditions in the Smiltene region are honored with folk dance, choirs, playing musical instruments, theater arts and crafts. Here, people of any age can discover and develop their talents in amateur art collectives - there are 65 of them in total, and more than 600 participants are involved. The active participation of citizens in amateur art strengthens Latvian identity and the preservation of Song and Dance festival traditions. We can also be proud of well-known and beloved musical groups and artists of other genres in Latvia.

The region is rich in natural and cultural-historical heritage, which gives an opportunity to diversify the tourism offer. The terrain, forests, parks, nature trails and attractions allow everyone to actively relax, engage in health-enhancing sports and physical training activities in nature. In the forests of the Smiltene district, there are marked cycle paths, well-equipped recreation areas near the lakes Niedrājs, Spicieris, Lizdoles and Bilskas, while Salainis attracts attention with its special shape of the map of Latvia. Families can enjoy a leisurely rest in nature on the castle hill of Cērtenes, near Rauna Staburags and on the Vaidava nature trail, but explore the cultural and historical heritage, for example, in the territory of Kalnamuiža, in Rauna park and Medieval castle ruins, in the historical center of Ape, in Gaujiena Manor park, in Zvārtava castle and in Smiltene local history museum in Mēri manor.
