Day Trip To Liepaja From Riga – Karosta Prison
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. On this day trip to Liepāja we will also visit the entire territory of Karosta.
