The Church of Tiskādu Old Believers

The congregation of Tiskādi Old Believers is one of the most ancient in Latvia. There is a view that Sloboda Tiskādi acquired its name thanks to the Russian Old Believers' camp. The fugitive Old Believers came here and settled on their lives, their home was “squeezed” (Russian. - “тискались”) among the two pre-dating mushrooms who had already lived in a beautiful Tiskādu Lake on the banks of the Old Believers. According to the stories, the first prayer in Tiskādi was built in a wooden house in 1680. The official parish was registered in 1908. The new prayer house, built in 1886, was recognised by law and expanded.
