DAUGAVPILS – Vecsaliena castle

Vecsaliena (Chervonka) castle was built in 1870 in the Neogothic style and is located in a bend of the park. The castle looks like a real fairy-tale castle. The building is covered with a steep span roof. The risalits, the mezzanines and the tower add up to its plastic. The details are worked out with special carefulness.
It is seldom when estates of Augshzeme can survive intact till nowadays. There are very few estates that look as good as the owner’s house of Vecsaliene estate. Other namse of the castle – Chervonka. It is possible that this second name has some connection to the red colour of red bricks. The building started in the 19th century, in early 80s and lasted for 3 years. The bricks were taken from local kiln, limes were burned from dolomite that was extracted from the banks of the river Daugava. There is a park close to the castle, in front of it there is a wide green circle, aside around flowers of larch, the road from the castle to the pub is planted with rowanberries.
Coin is available at Daugavpils Tourism Information Center.
