Daugavpils Fortress is a place where the second largest in the Baltic States hibernating bat colony inhabits. The fortress walls with a high humidity, as well as a special microclimate in the fortifications create favorable conditions for dwelling.

Exposition of the Daugavpils Bat Centre which is located in the lateral room of the Niсholas Gate in Daugavpils Fortress provides an opportunity to explore the way bats live, to see thematic stamp collection, artwork depicting bats, as well as pictures and informative materials that characterise the life of these animals in the Daugavpils Fortress.
