"Daugavas Loki" Nature Park
”Daugavas Loki” (the Bends of the Daugava River) has been established in the valley of the Daugava River between Kraslava and Naujene to preserve the unique landscape, biological diversity of plants and animals as well as cultural and historical monuments in the midstream valley of the Daugava.
The nature park comprises eight 4-6 kilometers long scenic bends or meanders of the Daugava River, believed to be the most ancient formations of the Daugava Valley in Latvia where the river has maintained its natural course. These bends are part of the Augsdaugava protected landscape area which was declared a NATURA 2000 site in 2004 and included in the national list of the UNESCO World Heritage in 2011!
