I'm just on my way of choosing right framework or CMS for building community portal (blogs, forum, news, video and media features, static pages). I tried version 0.8 of orchard and build small website. Right now i do not understand what kind of website i can build with Orchard. I read in one blog that it's created as .net alternative for Wordpress i.e. for blogging, and since that i'm not sure if it will be correct choice for my task. Could You please explain this a bit or may by advised another solutions ?

I'd say the only limitation is the time you have to develop modules. Orchard is a lot more flexible than WordPress: WP is just a blog engine whereas Orchard is a full-blown CMS.
