Isle of Saint Meinhard


The town of Ikskile lies in the center of the Baltic republic of Latvia on the Daugava River, one of the country's principal waterways.  The most important historical and cultural landmark in the town is the Church of St. Meinhard, which was constructed in the 12th century.  In this video, contributor Jurgis Kreilis give us an aerial tour of the structure, which now sits on an island which was created by the reservoir of a hydroelectric plant constructed several decades ago during the Soviet era.
