DMC VIA Baltic invites you to the 7-day tour across eastern Latvia – Latgale – with visits to castles and other historical constructions, until now striking by their grandeur. The Koknese castle, built of dolomite boulders, extracted on the banks of the Daugava, existed for 500 years, repeatedly undergoing reconstructions. Also today solid ruins of the castle impress by their strength.
A tour of the Dinaburg fortress that was built in the beginning of the 19th century in the times of the Russian Empire and had the strategic importance is waiting for guests in Daugavpils. A visit to Basilica of the Assumption in Aglona – the centre of Catholicism in Latvia – will touch everybody’s feelings. Tens of thousands of pilgrims come here every year to celebrate the day of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary into Heaven. In 1993, Pope John Paul II celebrated Mass in the town square.
DMC VIA Baltic will make tours of castles and mansions of Latvia at customers’ wish.
Restored castles and manors of Latvia are exquisite places, where one can try aristocratic food in an inn, treat oneself to SPA-services, enjoy horse riding and go for fishing in a baronial pond.
