Museum of the World War I “Pie Komendanta” is the only museum of its kind in Latgale. The exposition is located in a historical building, built in 1860. A collection of original items and documents, which reflects the everyday life of World War I can be seen at the exhibition. The old photos tell the story about the period of World War I and reflect the events that took place in Daugavpils and around it.

The exposition of the old post office and exhibition of old irons can be seen in the second part of the museum.  The museum also offers tours to the battlefields of World War I (prior agreement on the time of the tour is required). During the tour, it is possible to learn about the city of Dvinsk as the scene of military operations in 1914-1918.

During the active tourist season and the warm time, tours around Daugavpils Fortress and the city by electric bus (7 seats) are organised.
