There are two sections of forts, the northern section and a more southern section, closer to the long pier. Out of the two, the northern section is showcasing more fortification ruins. It is a bit trickier to get to. We took a Taxify ride from...More

Such a fascinating area, with ruins scattered over the beach, just reminds you a bit of the engineering of the past and stories of past conquerors. Go there by bike from town, the ride is worth it!

Very interesting place for walking, climbing on the ruins and learning history of Liepaja and the place. Absolutely worth visiting.

Spent the afternoon exploring the ruins of the old coastal fort. A nice way to spend the time along the beach.

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.

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
