Many crucifixes along the roads testify to the deep devotion to the faith of the inhabitants of these places.

Latgale is a country of unique nature, confusing history and a mixed population: Russians, Poles, Ukrainians and Belarusians. Latgale – the land of blue lakes, a paradise for anglers! Here, between Aglona, ​​Kraslava and Ezerneki, there are several hundred large and small lakes. 25 km from Rezekne, surrounded by hills, is the second largest lake in Latvia, Razna, 45 km from Rezekne – the most beautiful lake of Ezhezers, known for its many bays and islets. The Daugava River Valley, located between Kraslava and Daugavpils, with its steep banks (up to 40 m high) and the Daugavas Loki Nature Park, where you can find rare species of plants in abundance, is very picturesque.
