Baznīcas iela 34,
 
  
 
The Baznīcas iela Bridge that crosses the Alekšupīte River at this point is a 17th century stone base and red brick bridge. The Aleksupite River Pond is part of the Kuldīga Castle Paper Mill Pond and its Waterfall. This pond was made by restricting the amount of water that flows under the Baznīcas iela Bridge with a water passage or small tunnel opening located in the middle of the bridge. This small opening allows the water to flow in to the second pond that is using sluice gates to control the amount of water flow that goes through the dam and water used for the mill.
