The Soviet Military Base at Liepaja

Liepaja Mission

“During the Soviet occupation, Liepaja was a closed city and even nearby farmers and villagers needed a special permit to enter it. The Soviet military set up its Baltic naval base and nuclear weapon warehouses there.”

 


On this self-made mission we ventured into Liepaja – the site for the old abandoned Soviet military base in Latvia. We were attracted by the ruins, the destroyed remnants of military might, the transfigured architecture of war.
