The Krāslava municipality council has decided to replace the four Soviet-time street names in Krāslava, Indra, and Dagda, according to information on the local government's home page on January 26.

In Krāslava, Jeremejeva (Yeremeyev's) Street was renamed Jubilejas (Jubilee) Street, as Krāslava will celebrate its 100th anniversary this year.

Gagarina (Gagarin's) Street in Indra was renamed Kalna (Mountain) Street and Tereškovas (Tereshkova's) Street was named Laimes (Happiness) Street. Mičurina (Michurin's) Street in Dagda, meanwhile, was renamed Narūtas (Narūta River) Street.

After Russia's war launched in Ukraine, Latvia has been actively getting rid of Soviet-era relics, like monuments, symbols in the public environment, and street names.
