Turaida Evangelic Lutheran Church

The wooden church of Turaida is one of the oldest churches in Latvia. Near the church there was a cemetery of baptisized Livs which is known from 13th century. Up to nowadays only one burrial place has survived – it is memorial place to the girl named Maija – Rose of Turaida.

Archeological explorations indicate that there have been at least two churches on the site before this one. One of them was destroyed during the Great Northern War. The current church was built in 1750 during the time of pastor Daniel Merkel and remained relatively unchanged. During the 2009-2010 renovation, care was taken to duplicate the original craftsmanship and technology available during the original construction. For example, birch bark was used for insulation and the paint for the outer walls was made from a rye suspension added to ocher pigment. Today, the church looks as it did when it was built.
