Kolka Evangelical Lutheran Church


The foundation of the current stone church (1885–1886) was laid and the message for the next generations in the round ball of the church tower was put by the owner of Dundaga manor at that time Karl Ludvig Ferdinand von der Osten-Sacken. The construction works were started in 1885 under the management of the construction master Oto Zīverts based on the design developed by the architect Teodors Zeilers.

It is a rectangular single-nave longitudinal building with a polygonal sacristy and a tall, annexed square-plan tower with a polygonal roof spire.

The last service took place in 1969 and later the church was demolished. This church was reborn at the Awakening period.

A document found in 1992 during the reconstruction of the church says that the location of the church had changed three times until 1833. The altar piece which is the donation by the artist Helēna Heinrihsone (1993) is a very powerful accent in the otherwise modest interior of the church.
