Representing Latvia without Daugavpils is the same as talking about Russia, forgetting about Petersburg. This city is one of the most amazing in the whole Baltic States. It sprawls on the picturesque banks of the Western Dvina. At the time of Kievan Rus, this river connected the Slavic lands with the Baltic Sea. Daugavpils acquired a special status even during the existence of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. At that time, Lithuanians, Poles, Knights of the Livonian Order, the troops of Ivan the Terrible mercilessly fought outside the city. Dinaburg became part of the Russian Empire only in 1772 as a result of the first partition of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. In order to protect the western borders of the state, the city, the center of which was formerly a fortification, was turned into a real fortress. It is a pity that the present Dinaburg Castle has not survived until today. He was dismantled at the beginning of the XIX century during the redevelopment of the city. The building was located 20 kilometers from modern Daugavpils. Speaking about the sights of the second most important city in Latvia, first of all, we should mention the Daugavpils fortress. The construction of this object began before the invasion of Napoleon in Russia. Residents of Daugavpils are proud that their fortress has become the only monument of military architecture in Eastern Europe that has not changed since its foundation. The current architectural appearance of Daugavpils was formed in the XIX century. Most of the buildings here are built of red brick. The objects are built in the style of Latvian Baroque and eclecticism. The part of buildings is planned by the main Daugavpils architect Wilhelm Neumann in 1878-1895. The Church Hill, which is also called the Temple Hill, deserves special attention. It is located in the city center. Since Daugavpils is a multicultural city, here you can see the Lutheran Church of St. Luther, the Orthodox Boris and Gleb Cathedral, and the Catholic Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary. And nearby is the synagogue, which also has a museum dedicated to the history of the Jewish community in Daugavpils and all of Latvia. Among the old streets of the city, the Unity House, built in the 30s of the 20th century, stands out as a bright spot. This object is the embodiment of Latvian modernism. Its facades surprise with unique plastic solutions. Daugavpils is not the city that, in an effort to catch up and overtake Riga, loses its essence. This is an amazing place, ready to charm anyone with its atmosphere.
