Amazing views, chilling reminders of the past era, beautiful beaches, scenic and overwhelming in all aspects. A number one spot for history lovers and those who want to witness how massive the force of nature is against man-made creations.

North of the center of Liepaja, an interesting location is the northern forts. It takes 10 to 15 minuets to get there, and most of the visitors are Latvians.

In my opinion, Karosta Northern Forts are one of the most interesting places to visit in Latvia. The place has such an eerie atmosphere and the graffitis on the walls of the ruins give the place a special, vibrant feeling. An avid photographer could easily...More
