Located just north of Downtown, Church hill and Varšavas street had some of their iconic buildings spared of (post-)WW2 destruction.
The Church hill is crowned by historic houses of worship four different Christian denominations that stand side by side, signifying the multireligiousness of both Daugavpils and Latgale.
The churches are: Lutheran Cathedral (1893), Roman Catholic church of Blessed Virgin Mary (1905), SS Boris and Gleb Russian Orthodox Cathedral (1905; once a garrison church), Old Believer church (1928).
Nearby Varšavas street hosts multiple 19th century villas and a lead shot factory with period technology saved by Soviet economic backwardness and now converted into a tourist-oriented place of industrial heritage, with regular guided excursions available everyday.
The factory still uses its Lead shot tower, where pieces of lead are thrown from above in order to attain a perfect form because of gravity before hitting the ground. Back in 19th century this was a commonplace lead shot production but it seems like out of these world these days.
Between the churches and lead shot factory Varšavas street hosts a Russian culture center where information about various aspects of Daugavpils Russian culture are presented (Othodox and Old Believer faiths, Daugavpils fortress history).
