The exhibition and the historical workshop

The Daugavpils Shot Factory is the only ammunition production factory in the Baltic which is open for tourists and where you can see the oldest shot casting tower in Europe, which is functioning also nowadays. It is possible to visit the historical lead cast facilities, where melted lead acquires the form of a perfect bullet drop, falling down from the height of 40 meters. In addition, you can visit an exhibition about the factory.

If interested, the visitors for an extra fee can try out the production at the shooting-range of the factory and get to the top of the still-functioning lead casting tower. The visit in the territory of the factory is supervised by experienced guides. For more information, please contact us.
