    The lake divides the former New Subate from Old Subate, the waters separating Reformation and Counterreformation being now blood under the bridge...

    The Catholic church you see today replaced a wooden church in 1831. The carved crucifix is of a type more common in Lithuania than in Latvia -- but this part of Latvia was heavily Lithuanian prior to border adjustments that gave Palanga and the coast to Lithuania and parts of the Ilūkste district to Latvia (adjustments brokered by a Scotsman...).

    The Lutheran Church, built in 1686, is architecturally unique for Latvia, with five towers. Unfortunately, as is the case with many rural churches in Latvia, it is most often shut (even on Sundays, since services are held only about once a month). The interior is rumored to be remarkable, though, with carvings from neighboring Lithuania (and I would suggest crossing into Lithuania to see the oldest oak in Europe, just across the border!).
