Koknese Lutheran Church

Blaumaņa iela 1, Koknese, Aizkraukles novads, Latvija, LV-5113

The Koknese Evangelical Lutheran Church was built in 1687. At first it was a small wooden building without a tower, with a clay floor and thatched roof. The church was destroyed during the war and reconstructed a bit later. The church was able to hold services again in 1731. In 1819, the church had a more serious renovation and a sacristy was built. The current tower was constructed in 1887, a new roof was also installed and interior renovations carried out. Ernst Glück, translator of the Bible into Latvian, once used to serve as a priest here.
