  • It's one of the best retained fortresses in nowadays - almost in whole perimeter there are original stone walls with ditches around them. Inside fortress there are a lot of city administration and abandoned factory buildings, including Mark Rothko museum with original paintings. Back in the day, when building of fortress finished, war technology advanced so far, it could easily shoot over the walls with cannons from far away. So it never experienced fights it was build for. During soviet union, it was military base and they destroyed one of the narrow entrance gates, so they can wheel in combat aircraft.
  • Nice place for a walk and taking pictures.
  • Interesants Rotko muzejs.
  • Must visit if you are in Daugavpils
  • If you want to visit Daugavpils, start with Daugavpils fortress (Daugavpils cietoksnis).
