“Very impressive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

This place is a must visit if you like art and culture. Renovated building within Daugavpils Fortress, hosts not only Mark Rothko but also other exibitions that are changed every few months. Apart from Rothko paintings, interactive exhibition about history of Daugavpils and insight into Rothko art and life is really good. Full ticket is about 9 EUR, but you can choose to visit only part of building and then it's cheaper.

“Even Riga doesn't have this”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

Wonderful art gallery with some insight into Mark Rotko's life and art, but with significant room for other interesting exhibitions. Top quality! Expect to pay around 10 euros.
