The factory has the only lead casting tower in Europe that still works.

Through centuries, i.e., during the tsarist Russia, the first Free State of Latvia, the Soviet Union and the independence period of Latvia, the factory has always produced high quality lead shots for hunting and it is still involved in this activity. The factory has equipment and structures built in the 19th century and supplemented before and after both World Wars, and they are well harmonized with the modern equipment of manufacturing the ammunition.

The factory offers seeing the historic exhibition and lead shot casting workshop and climbing its unique 37 m high tower with 19 m deep cooling well under it. You may see the famous Church Hill (Baznīcu kalns)of Daugavpils, the city centre and the distant fortress walls from the factory tower.  The ammunition factory is the destination of many local and foreign tourists willing to experience the unique ambience of the 19th century and learn about the operation of the ancient equipment today. After visiting the factory everyone is invited to test the ready production at the factory's shooting-gallery. Visit to the factory may be combined with seeing Daugavpils Fortressand other military objects, thus gaining an extensive insight into many aspects of Latvian military history.

On June 14th Latvia’s Arena Riga will host one of last year’s brightest pop sensations Lana Del Rey. Her debut album “Born To Die” including its hit single “Video Games” has sold in more than 4 million copies. The gorgeous singer-songwriter has been awarded several prestigious music awards. Tickets go on sale starting March 6th in all “Biļešu Serviss” and “Ticketpro” box-offices as well as online.

The fascinating American singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey – born Elizabeth “Lizzy” Grant is one of today’s hottest alterative pop artists worldwide. The New York state native skilfully combines various musical styles, such as blues, soul, indie and jazz with her own melancholy lyrics, thus creating a unique sound that reflects her deepest emotions.

Her musical career began in small bars and clubs in Brooklyn, New York City, where she would often perform. Her unique style had always set her apart – Elizabeth would deliver her own versions of 1960’s jazz and blues instead of the then-popular indie folk. Signing her first record deal at the age of 20 and releasing her first digital album under her real name, the young singer soon after rebranded herself as Lana Del Rey, signing a joint record deal with Interscope Records and Polydor.

In the summer of 2011 Del Rey released the video of her new song Video Games via YouTube, which soon became a real viral sensation. The song was included in her 2012 album “Born To Die” which was sold in more than 4.4 million copies worldwide, topping the music charts with lyrical anthems such as Blue Jeans, Born To Die andSummertime Sadness.

Del Rey has also received several prominent music awards, including the 2012 Brit Award for the Best International Breakthrough Act, an MTV European Music Award for the Best Alternative Act as well as this year’s Brit Award as the Best International Female Solo Artist.

A bright and untamed star, Lana Del Rey is both blinding and exciting; her art and persona seem to contain secrets unknown, mystifying and intriguing.   

Tickets go on sale on March 6th at 10 am in all “Biļešu Serviss” and “Ticketpro” box-offices as well as online. General admission - LVL 29. Seats starting from LVL 30 –LVL 37.
