Description
Turaida wooden church is located not far from the castle in the place where ancient churches were built and where was arranged Medieval cemetery. It is the oldest wooden church built by country craftsmen which survived in its place in Vidzeme.It was built in 1750 by local craftsmen therefore initially church did not have belfry. Bell was hanged between beams next to the church. Near the church there was a cemetary of baptisized Livs which is known from 13th century. Since second half of 18th century it was forbidden to bury the dead near churches in such a way cemetary gradually disappeared. Up to nowadays only one burrial place has survived – it is memorial place to the girl named Maija – Rose of Turaida. Legend tells us about life of Maija, her faithful love and death. “It was in the beginning of 17th century during Polish – Swedish war. Clerk of the castle Mr. Greif found small girl whose mother was killed in the war. He adopted this girl as his own. When the girl grew up she was very beautiful and diligent girl …” What happened next you will find out when you will come to Turaida
