Description

The northern forts of Liepaja - This is an historical monument which is subject to the mighty power of Mother Nature. The battery can also be seen from the Northern breakwater of Liepaja. It’s worth hiking the four kilometres along the beach to the Northern Forts.

The fortress was built at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century to protect the Liepāja Naval Base in the event of a possible enemy attack. The fortification system bordered the entire city.

In November 1908 the fortress was liquidated, as its construction had been acknowledged a strategic mistake. A part of the cannons were dismantled and delivered to the Kaunas Fortress in Lithuania, while the other part was recast. An attempt was made to blow up the artillery batteries, the underground structures and the gunpowder warehouses. However, the desired result was reached and, this way, the remains of the Tsarist Russia fortress and also the later, more modern fortress, still stand today.
