Nature Park "Daugavas loki"
The Nature Park is located in the Daugava River valley section from the border of Krāslava to Naujene. It was established to preserve the unique and peculiar landscape of the ancient valley of the Daugava River, its valuable nature complexes, biological diversity of plants and animals, as well as its cultural and historical monuments.
The most characteristic specific feature of the nature here is eight large bends of the Daugava River, which reach 4-6 km and have steep slopes formed on their shores. Many natural reservations and cultural and historical monuments may be found in the park territory: the ancient valley of the Daugava River, the Juzefova Manor House Park with a unique ravine (the Marija Trail), the Vecpils Castle Mound with the 13th century Livonian Order castle ruins and the Markova information trail.
