Daugavpils can be safely called one of the most amazing cities in Latvia. Located in the south-east of the country, this city is a major center for education, tourism and logistics in the republic, second only to the capital, Riga. The picturesquely flowing river Western Daugava divided it into two parts. Daugavpils has a temperate continental climate, which slightly distinguishes it from the settlements located on the coast. The history of this city began with the fact that back in 1275 the Livonian Order built the castle of Dinaburg here. For several centuries, the fortress was captured by the Lithuanians, the Poles, and the troops of Ivan the Terrible, until in the XVIII century it was finally ruled by the Russian Empire. In the XIX century, tsarist Russia turned Dinaburg into the largest populated area of ​​the Baltic States. By decree of Emperor Alexander III, the city was named Dvinsk, but after the formation of the Republic of Latvia in 1920, it acquired the original name of Daugavpils. This town does not have its own airport, although the authorities are actively working on the creation of an international terminal. The nearest air gate is located in the capital of Latvia. Tourists travel to Daugavpils by train from Belarus, Russia, Lithuania and other countries. Also established bus service. High-quality roads link a large Latvian center with various localities in Russia and Europe. The historical center is perhaps the most remarkable part of the city. It is built up with buildings of the XIX-XX centuries. The fortress built at the beginning of the 19th century is considered to be the true symbol of Daugavpils. This fortification structure was intended to protect the western borders of the Russian Empire. Despite all the historical troubles, the castle in its original form has survived to the present day. Visiting Daugavpils, it will not be superfluous to look at the Temple Hill. Here is the Cathedral of St. Luther. The brick pseudo-gothic building was erected at the end of the XIX century. A little younger than him, located nearby, the Roman Catholic Cathedral of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which combines the features of Baroque and Classicism. The largest Orthodox church in Daugavpils is the temple of Boris and Gleb, built before the start of the First World War. In addition to these architectural structures, this marvelous city can surprise you with many interesting places that will definitely appeal to an outsider.
