Geocache Description:


Smaižu baznīca atrodas Gramzdas pagastā netālu no Dāmas ciema. Tā ir brāļu draudzes baznīca. Interesants ir izvēlētais ēkas celtniecības veids. baznīcas ēka nav mūrēta, bet gan izlieta no betona. Baznīcas ēka tika celta 10 gadus un bija gatava 1939. gadā. Pirms Otrā pasaules kara draudzē bija vairāk nekā 400 locekļu. Baznīca veiksmīgi pārdzīvoja Otrā pasaules kara kaujas, bet liktenīgs tai kļuva padomju valdīšanas laiks, (darbojās līdz 1952.gadam). Patreiz ir saglabājies Smaižu baznīcas tornis un mūris.

Smaiži church belongs to the brother’s parish, Its building started in 1929 and finished in 1939. It was built in unusual way, not using masonry, but was cast from concrete.  Before the Second World War the parish had more than 400 members. Edifice succesfuly survived the battles of WWII, but could not withstand following soviet times. The church was working until the year 1952 and was abandoned later. Church tower and walls are still in place and in good condition. Some restauration works were done by local activists in year 2019.
