Living in Daugavpils

On the banks of the Daugava river, Daugavpils is a city in southeastern Latvia. The name Daugavpils literally translates to Daugava Castle, and the city borders both Belarus and Lithuania. The historical center of Daugavpils is exceptionally well-maintained, with beautiful red-bricked buildings making up a large portion of the architecture. The Dinaburg Fortress is another example of the stunning architecture in Daugavpils - the castle was built in the 19th century, and has had very little alterations made to it ever since. Living in Daugavpils can be exciting, invigorating and rewarding, just like living anywhere in that part of southeastern Latvia. Sometimes, however, it can be easier to live as an expatriate in Daugavpils if you have a support base and InterNations can help towards making the support structure you need.

Moving to Daugavpils

Since the city has borders with two other countries, it has become a popular place for travelers, as well as expats to take up a new home. The city has a moderate, continental climate, making it a comfortable place to live in all year round - which probably contributes to the fact that the city has a rapidly-growing population. Daugavpils is the second largest city in the whole of Latvia, with a population of over 100,000 people, and that number is on the rise. Moving anywhere new can be tricky, and moving to Daugavpils is no exception. Luckily, there are thousands of expatriates who have had similar experiences to yours, and they share those experiences in the forums and discussion boards on the InterNations site. The Expat Magazine also has articles written by the expat community as well as InterNations in-house staff, each one detailing a different aspect of moving and living abroad.

    The idea to conect expats worldwide is not only great, it really works. I met several French-speaking women within the first weeks.
