Bērze Lutheran Church

Bērze Lutheran Church is an architectural monument of national importance. It was built in 1743 as a wooden church and rebuilt in 1820. The church has a harmonium built in the 18th century and a bell – a gift from Kārlis Ulmanis, the President of Latvia, in 1939 as a dedication to the church, in which he had been christened and confirmed.

During the Second World War, the church was partially destroyed, especially its belfry. Residents of Bērze managed to save the bell, which has now been remounted in the renovated belfry.
