We had a guided tour here combining it with a visit to Karosta prison. Very interesting and well worth searching out. Some of the emplacements have collapsed so can be fun (!) scrambling around. Ideal for parkour enthusiasts others need to be cautious. Bring a...More

We had guided tour of these forts. It was interesting but a little light on facts. We explored the bunkers with fire torches which the kids loved. Great beautiful spot and we even went swimming after the tour.

We really enjoyed our trip to Karosta. You can reach it by car or by a bus or minibus 22. Don't forget to see the orthodox cathedral nearby.
