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.

Starting from April till end of October we offer you to hire a plane Vilga 35A for three and see Liepaja from the bird's eye view. It is also available airplane AN-2 with 12 passenger seats for tour and see any place in Latvia. Request for flight on mob. Phone: +371 9229771 or e-mail: kurzemesavio@anet.lv.
