    Tragic event in local history happened at the beginning of Northern War, when Swedes after winning the Saxons decided to get rid of Russians, who was on Lucavsala Island without any help. Strength Swedish army hoped to win quickly, but it turned out otherwise. There was such a bustle, that when king Charles XII arrived, he saw a lot of his soldiers dead and 20 Russian soldiers firing back in redoubt. King was admired by the boldness of Russian soldiers and commanded to take them prisoners. Killed soldiers made the first common grave in Riga.
