Zebrenes Elku Hill

Address: 
Bikstu pagasts

The Elku (Idols) Hill is situated between two lakes - Svēte and Zebrus. The hill reaches the height of 20 m, standing high above the marshy surroundings. It is possible that in old times both the lakes were connected and the hill was an island. The hill is considered to be the central ancestral sacrificial and worship place of Semigallians.
The hill is notable for unusual flora. It is said that herbs collected there at  the Midsummer Eve have healing powers.  The hill cannot be accessed by car, therefore you will have to walk more than 1 km along the shore of Lake Svēte to get there.
