Daugavpils, once Dinaburg for Germans, Borisoglebsk for Russians and Dvinsk for Poles, the second largest city in Latvia, has developed as a result of the separate city parts amalgamation. The buildings of the 19th century have remained in the centre between the Daugava River and the railway station. Daugavpils has its own theatre - the Daugavpils Musical and Drama Theatre. It is located in the Unity House (1937) in the city centre. The northeast part of the city, Stropi, is a popular recreational area located near the Big Stropu Lake (Lielais Stropu ezers).
