HistoryEdit

Dreverna was first mentioned in the thirteenth century. Dreverna was an important trading centre, as it had a large fish market. During the Soviet occupation, the settlement was based around farming.[2]

In 1898 a primary school was set up, and from 1951, the seventh year was included, in 1986 the eighth teaching year was included which formed the Dreverna High School.[3]

The settlement was affected by the January 2007 tornado, where the village had a power failure, and there were heat supply disturbances.[4]
