There are magnificent views in Daugava bends - winding section of majestic river between Daugavpils and Kraslava. The natural
valley of the river is up to 45 meters deep and is rich with cultural and nature heritage, but especially - with numerous rare species of plants and animals.
In some places there is comfortable tourist infrastructure - watchtowers and trails. Still many of the most gorgeous places are not that easy to reach - what helps to preserve the feel of wilderness.

Simple buildings are decorated with woodcarvings.
