From Riga to Liepaja
Karosta Prison is a place full of history and pain. It was built in the beginning of 20th century. This is not a usual prison for criminals, but a guard house for navy sailors and non commissioned officers who have broken the law. This place is very depressing with all the sings on the walls like calendars, messages to loved ones and different drawings. Mostly it was used as a short disciplinary penalty place, from where nobody has ever escaped.
Fortress was built in the end of 19th century and its main purpose was to protect the naval base from any attacks that could come from sea. It surrounded whole city of Liepaja. The best option is to take a guided tour in Northern Forts. Guide will guide you through the bunkers and underground as well as talk about the history and stories that surround this place.
Liepaja is also called ”city of wind” due to a constant sea breeze. It is very beautiful city and 3rd largest city in Latvia after capital Riga and Daugavpils. In the city some of the main objects that you should visit are Latvian Musicians’ Walk of Fame, Monument to Mariners Lost at Sea and Holy Trinity Cathedral.
