The new edition “Walk Through the Beautiful Liepāja. The Boom” contains more than 200 specially selected and processed pictures of Liepāja from the period before World War I. 70 of them are available in augmented reality.
Downloading the “Old Libau” app, opening it, and placing it next to the images in the book, you will be able to see what the place looks like today.
“Walk through the Beautiful Liepaja. Andris Ivanovs and Kaspars Migla led the project in collaboration with Dace Kārkla, Director of the Liepāja Museum.
