Daugavpils Lead Shot Factory is the only ammunition production factory in the Baltics that is open for tourists. Moreover, it is the place where the oldest shot-casting tower in Northern Europe can be observed.
There is a possibility to climb on the shot tower that is one of the highest sightseeing places in Daugavpils and to see Daugavpils city centre, the Church Hill and the Fortress ramparts from the “bird’s eye view”. In addition, it is possible to try out pneumatic slugs in the factory’s shooting range.
The schedule of the guided tours is available here.
