Liepāja beach has been a popular swimming area since the 1860s when Liepāja was in the process of becoming a well-known spa resort and place to improve your health among European and Russian aristocrats, one of them being the Russian Tsar himself.
Lake Liepāja is a lagoon created by the receding Baltic Sea. The lake and surrounding meadows are included in the nature reserve “Liepājas Ezers” and is a “Natura 2000” protected area of European significance because of nesting and migratory birds that can be found there. Included in the list of protected bird species are 27 nesting bird species, 10 winter bird species and 50 bird species that feed here during migration.

Karosta is a wondrous, paradoxical and unique place not only in the context of Latvia, but also in the historical and architectural context of the world. Karosta is the largest historical military garrison in the Baltics and constitutes almost a third of Liepāja’s territory.
16 craftsmen of the Kurzeme region gather here at the House of Craftsmen. They are more than happy to tell visitors about their craft and traditions. Their workshops are located on two floors of the building. Visitors can see the process of creating a national costume on a loom, the making of dolls, candles, metal jewellery, ceramic art and creations from leather and amber.
“In Liepaja, you can feel like in the city centre of London and after a moment you can be close to nature and experience the benefits of the countryside magic," says Guna Eglite, Board Member of the “ReMedine” ltd., who has lived in China, Pakistan, Greece, Japan and the United Kingdom. However, now she and her family – husband and five children, name themselves as Liepāja locals already for one and a half year. In their opinion, Liepāja is the best place in the world where to live with family and bring up the new generation. Recently, people from close and far-away places in Latvia have chosen Liepaja as their place for living and now they proudly call Liepāja as their new home.
