Daugavgrīva Fortress plays an important role in the history of Latvia, Sweden and Russia. It was called Dynamynde during the Swedish rule and Ust Dvinsk while being part of the Russian Empire.

We will learn about the rich and fascinating history of the fortress, as well as look into the long and interesting life of the most famous constructor of the fortress and later Swedish Vidzeme General Governor Ēriks Dālbergs and his particular relationship with Daugavgrīva and Riga.

We would join the tour in English at 12:00. The tour is guided by the fantastic business person, expat and history lover - Jacob Lalander.
