Daugavpils is situated in Latvia – a small country on the coast of the Baltic Sea. Daugavpils is the second largest city in Latvia and the perfect location for Russian immersions within the European Union.

  • 96, 000 people live – the second largest city in Latvia;
  • nearly everyone speaks standard modern Russian as their native or primary language;
  • Russian is the language of everyday communication.

This is a unique place – a Russian-language enclave, “the most Russian city” in the European Union.

Daugavpils was founded in 1275 (it was called Dinaburg then). In the 17th century, Russian Old-believers, who had broken with the Russian Orthodox, started to settle in the region in order to worship according with their ancient traditions. In the 18th century Daugavpils was included into the Russian Empire.

From its turbulent history the Daugavpils region has inherited a remarkable ethnic, confessional, and cultural diversity. This small territory is a home for different communities – Russian, Latvian, Latgalian, Jewish, Polish, Byelorussian, Gipsy – where they have been living and cooperating for centuries.
