Art Nouveau neighboring Soviet blocks neighboring pretty seaside villas, it is all eclectic in Liepāja. Dubbed a “City of Winds” because of the expansive Baltic sea coastline, this Latvian ice-free port is an interesting mix of cultures with a rich history and plenty of fascinating things to explore. Have a stroll in the old core marveling at the beautiful church architecture, take a long walk along the Blue Flagged Liepāja beachfront, head to the Karosta neighborhood to find the prison turned into museum and hotel (you can actually have a night in). Don’t forget about the eeriest sight of the city, a complex of abandoned forts dotting the Northern part of the Baltic coast.
