Liepaja a short guide
The lighthouses of Liepaja are the first ones to welcome European sailors in Latvia.
Liepaja is the third largest city in Latvia, situated between the sea and a lake.
People have lived here for more than 750 years. The village Liva was first mentioned
in writing in 1253. In the beginning Liepaja Port was in the mouth of the river
Liva, but it was necessary to move the port to another place several times because
the Liva River valley was often covered in sand. The German name Libawe appeared
for the first time in 1560, and from this name the modern Latvian name of Liepaja
emerged. The name and boundaries of the city were officially approved on 18 March
1625. Liepaja has a unique cultural heritage of Swedish kings, German barons,
Russian Tsars and Finnish Jeegers.
Liepaja main attractions are: its beach and the sea, festivals and pubs, own symphony
orchestra, organs and people.
