Folklore Latvia - A legend

A legend says that once a terrible storm threatened with imminent death for a ship in the Baltic Sea. The captain was the only one who believed  God will save them.  He promised to build a church in place where his ship will lead.

A miracle happened: suddenly the wind changed the direction and the ship led to Jūrkalne shore. The captain named the place Lucky Hill and he built the church as he promised. The place, where the church was, is  underwater now.
