|Flag of Daugavpils.|
Claudi tells me about both buildings. The church above is the St. Alexander Nevsky Russian Orthodox Chapel, this being one of the 4 big religions in the city, including the very conservative "old believers", something else I didn't know about. She also says there is a hill in Daugavpils where churches form the four religions stand together. That is really nice!
Meanwhile, the building below is the Vienības Nams, a cultural and social center that holds many services, like a theater, a fitness centre, a library, a café and a tourist information centre and gift shop. It was built between 1936 and 1937.
Finally, something else I learn from Claudi is that there are 4 main regions in Latvia: Latgale, where Daugavpils is located, Vidzeme, which holds Riga, Zengalelin and Kurzeme.
