Daugavpils district is a juncture between Latgale and Selonia. Strategically situated in the East of Latvia, it consists of 19 parishes and is traversed by the “destiny river” of Latvia – the Daugava. In the section from Krāslava to Krauja, the winding ribbon of the Daugava River follows a remarkably mazy course; beyond Daugavpils and onwards through Līksna and Nīcgale, it runs straight and steady towards the Baltic Sea, bisecting the district territory. To the left lie the Augszeme or Selonia, to the right stretches Latgale. Main values of Daugavpils district are its people, sincere and hospitable, its rich cultural and historical heritage and unforgettable natural landscapes that invite everyone to set out for an exciting journey. Welcome to the Daugavpils district!
