Ikšķile is a place where more than 800 years ago historical events of both national  and European importance took place. The ruins of the oldest sacred stone building, located on the St. Meinhard’s Island on the river Daugava, are the witnesses of these events. In 1184, Meinhard, who was an Augustinian canon at the Segeberg Abbey in Holstein, started to build a church on the island. The church served as the chair of the Livonian bishop till 1201, when Riga was founded. The building was thoroughly reconstructed during 1879–1881, but was destroyed in 1916. Nowadays, a 10 m high metal cross (artist: E. Samovičs), and a stone altar (sculptor: J. Karlovs) are placed on the island. For conservation purposes the ruins were covered with a metal roof in 2002. Visitors can get to the ruins via passenger ferry or a boat. Each August the St. Meinhard's day is celebrated on the island, and the Holy Mass is held. If previously arranged, it is possible to held baptism or wedding on the island. An architectural and historical monument of national importance.

What a unique feature. Am I imagining that the island is shaped like a ship?  Thanks for the share.

Yes! You’re absolutely right. Part of it was defended with concrete blocks. Before that, during the spring time, ice damaged Iceland.

Btw I like the narration that gives some background on the visuals. really cool!


The MAudio Uber Mic has very good reviews and is relatively "inexpensive" for a pro-level microphone.
Simiar for the Rode NT USB series.
It's only just research/referrals based, I don't (yet) have either of them my own.

I do have a Jabra Speak which I use for video conferences, and it's fairly good for Voice recording. I did some training material with it and it worked relatively well. Bit of editing with audacity did help, though ;) Maybe you have something similar available that you can try out.

In case case some of this is helpful ;)
