Daugavpils – the second largest city of Latvia and the centre of East-Latvian region – has given to the world the outstanding painter Mark Rothko, the “King of Tango” Oscar Strok and the actor,
stage director, public and political figure Solomon Mikhoels (Vovsi). The 19th century fortress and the Church Hill with the churches of four different confessions situated there are the symbols of
Daugavpils. Daugavpils is one of the few Latvian cities that can boast of a unique ensemble of classical and eclectic buildings.
