Rezekne (Russian: Резекне) is in Latgale, Latvia.


The town is a good place from which to explore the nearby Rāzna National Park, which contains Lake Rāzna, Latvia's second largest.

Being a major rail junction, Rezekne is a place where travellers may get stuck for a few hours/days between trains.
