The history of the Daugavpils Innovation Centre building begins in 1978, when the cinema “Oktobris” was opened, which was renamed the cinema “Austra” in 1992 and “Renesanse” in 2001.

On July 1, 2015, the Curiosity Centre “Zili brīnumi” was opened in the premises of the cinema, in 2016 it was renamed “ZINOO Daugavpils” and on July 1, 2019, it became the Daugavpils Innovation Centre.

The architect of the building, Olģerts Krauklis, developed an innovative building material specifically for the Daugavpils project – acoustic ceramic building blocks.
