At the end of May, Daugavpils residents are waiting for the Day of Open Churches with exhibitions, excursions and concerts


At the end of May, Daugavpils will host a large cultural event “Night of Churches” (Baznīcu nakts), which will be supplemented by the action “Day of Open Churches” for the second time in a row.

On the last Saturday of May, from 10 am until late in the evening, all residents of Daugavpils and guests of the city will have the opportunity to visit any city church.

This year, the motto of the Night of the Churches will be the biblical words from the Book of the Prophet Joel: “And pass this on to your children and your children’s children.” (5Moz 4:9), which invite us to reflect on the legacy of the faith and its values ​​from generation to generation, family ties, and the importance of the church.

By tradition, Baznīcu nakts is held in Christian churches at the beginning of summer, when everyone can discover cultural and spiritual values ​​in a new way. On this day, the churches are open until midnight and beyond, giving you the opportunity to enjoy architecture, music, conversation or silence and prayer.

Which churches will be open on Church Night can be found on the interactive map of the event interaktīvajā kartē.

So far, only one religious community in Daugavpils, the Martin Luther Cathedral, has filed an official application for participation in the Night of Churches.

On SaturdayMay 28it can be visited from 10:00 to midnight. During this time, all visitors to the church will have the opportunity to go up to the observation deck under the very dome and see our city from a bird’s eye view.

And while visiting the Cathedral, you can see an exhibition of the artist and the priest Atisa Bambana “Perceptible and elusive”, conduct tours of the temple in Latvian and Russian, listen to a solo concert May Calnini “Ave Maria” and take part in the common prayer.
