Lūznava (formerly Dlužņeva, Glužņeva) is a village located approximately 230 kilometers from Riga and is the central location of Lūznava parish, Rēzekne municipality, Latvia.

History

The first information about Lūznava village comes from the 19th century when it was called Laizāni village. At approximately 1870 brothers Pēteris and Jūlijs Dlužņevski of Polish origin became the new landowners of Laizāni village land.

At the end of 19th century once again the landowners changed and Laizāni village land became the property of General Kerbich (also of Polish origin) who laid the foundations of Lūznava village such as it actually looks today.

General Kerbetz was an engineer by education and a lover of nature, so he started two important projects in Lūznava – consctruction of the Lūznava Manor and the beautifulLūznava nature park. The first phase of Lūznava Manor construction was finished shortly before the 1905 Russian revolution and it was completely finished in 1911. Although Kerbetz used the manor as a summer house but spent most of his time in Italy. To this day both the Lūznava Manor and natural park remain the main places to see in Lūznava.

Lūznava professional technical school

The Lūznava professional technical school was founded in 1945 and its main purpose was to provide technical education in several mostly agriculture related spheres. It was a very important point of knowledge and education for the regeneration of region just after World War II.
