Daugavpils to Vilnius

by henrykkanada

For travel 13 September.
The DB train timetables show a 6:07 train to Vilnius, but in one place it says even days and in the other every day. Which is correct?
The Latvian and Lithuanian bus timetables do not show any connections, even through Zarasai. Eurolines do not show a connection. Are there any connections?
Any bus day trips possible from Daugavpils to Agiona, Resekne orLudza?

Thank you for the information. I am using the link for routes between Daugavpils, Ludza, Aglona and Rezekne. I can't find connections Daugavpils to Vilnius or Zarasi. I am planning for a morning departure, Monday, 13 Sept.

Hello,

Sorry -- hadn't logged in for some time. There are a several buses a day from Daugavpils to Zarasai, and a few from Zarasai to Vilnius -- but the local station doesn't tend to have info on the Lithuanian buses. If you still need the information, let me know and Iļl try to find out for you.

Day trips to Rezekne, Ludza and Aglona should not be a problem.

Good luck,
/P

Travel Tips for Daugavpils

Clean Street but nothing to do.......

by MarkMoore

Daugavpils is a clean and friendly city although English is not universally spoken. It probably better to go in Summer - it can be very cold in winter - however it is unlikely that you will find very much to do unless you are keen on Churches or monuments.

Easy life

by roman-w

In Daugavpils you can live a easy life, because there is nothing special to do.
The people are friendly and helpful, even when they do not speak english at all. Russian can help, since they are close to Russia.
They have some nice public parks to hang around and there is also the banks of the Daugava, the river.
The police was also helpful, since one of four policemen spoke good english.
It was not so easy to find the tourist office, but once found, you can get there necessary basic infos. The goats, browsing in a park. Incredible!

Vecā Forštate

by daugavpilietis

Vecā Forštate (The Old Vorstadt or "Suburb") was built up when the old city was razed to build the Fortress -- most of Daugavpils' early 19th C population lived here; others were transferred from what is now the Fortress to the Esplanāde in 1826, but that neighborhood was almost entirely rebuilt (in the Soviet lack of style) during the occupation. Thus the Old Vorstadt contains some of the oldest buildings in the city, though the great landmarks like the St. Petersburg Station were destroyed in the wars.

The Old Vorstadt Old Believers' Prayer Hall

by daugavpilietis

An Old Believers' church in Vecā Forštate (in Līksnas iela between Aveņu and Šūņu ielas, near Šūņezers, the lake separating the Vorstadt from Poguļanka and the Fortress) probably existed already in the 18th C, before the Fortress was built (the first Old Believers' meeting house was built in what is now Grīva in 1660), but the church (called Nikolo-Pokrovsk) resembled a simple log house since even in 1889 the Old Believers were prevented from erecting a cross by the Orthodox Russian Empire. A wooden tower with four bells was finally built in 1905, and after Latvia became independent the current 18-meter tower replaced it. Father Timofey Kudryashov drew attention to this church in 1996, when he claimed to see Jesus weeping on the 400-year-old crucifix within.

The New Old Believers' Prayer Hall

by daugavpilietis

According to Father Aleksei Zhilko of the First Congregation (in Jaunbūve -- see "Things To Do"), Daugavpils has more Old Believers' congregations than any other city in the world (the Old Believers took refuge from persecution in what is now Latvia from the 17th C). The new house of worship was consecrated in 2003 and stands next to the old one, at Līksnas iela 38 in the Old Vorstadt. The Central Council of the loosely organized sect was in Latvia between the wars. In 1935 there were 107 000 Old Believers in Latvia, 78 000 of them in Latgola -- their numbers today are difficult to estimate. A feature of their belief is a unique form of singing, and the Jaunbūve congregation supports a choir that has become known internationally. If you visit any of their houses of worship, be aware that they hold conservative views regarding dress (women should wear dresses or skirts and must cover their heads).
