800th year park

In 1985, in order to celebrate 800 years since Ikšķile was founded, a commemorative stone sculpted by Jānis Karlovs was placed in the central park.   The anniversary was also celebrated in the Vatican, tying it with the beginning of the spread of Christianity in the Baltic. The ruins of the first Ikšķile church are located on St. Meinhard's Island in the middle of Daugava.
