“TheCeļotājs” – Touring Liepaja Latvia "Liepaja City Sights in Courland"
 
Liepaja Tours in cooperation with “TheCeļotājs” presents, “TheCeļotājs” – "Liepaja City Sights in Courland", with its hundreds of photographs and many slideshows of the area of what the local’s residents call Old Town “Vecliepāja” and parts of New Town “Jaunliepāja”.
 
"Liepaja City Sights in Courland" will take you on a walking tour of historical Liepaja Old Town and its many old wooden and brick structures as well as its many historical Churches and Cathedrals. You will also see the historical décor of the interior of Liepaja Holy Trinity Lutheran Cathedral and Saint Joseph Catholic Cathedral. As some of you maybe young at heart, we will even climb the “137” wooden steps that wind around the inside of Holy Trinity Lutheran Cathedral’s bell tower to get a birds eye view of the City of Liepaja from the  walkway that runs around the outside of the bell tower. While we are inside the bell tower you will even see the clock movement that dates back to 1906 and is still working. You will even get a close up view of its two bells.
 
You can also make arrangements to visit the Skede “Šķēde” Dunes, which is located along the Baltic Sea coast line and 15km north of Liepaja, which is the largest site of the Nazi’s Mass Murder of Liepaja Jews and non-Jews in 1941–1942. Today there is a Russian and Jewish and non Jewish Memorials dedicated to the Jews and non Jews that were murdered in this location. While you are in the area of these dunes, you can also walk area and the  locations of these 1941-1942 Mass Murder Graves that ran along the dunes where the mass murders of some 7500 Jewish and non Jewish people took place. These mass graves are not marked and due to the length of time, 71 years, that has past and the ever changing environment all one can see is sand dunes and some indentations in the landmark, but with the help of a satellite map and a former GPR study one will be able to locate the area of these graves.
 
While you are visiting Liepaja, take the time to visit the Karosta Naval Port Area and its many former Russian Tsar's era structures and the famous former Karosta Navel Port Prison and Museum, where you are given a personal guided tour of this former naval prison or what they called a detention center to those who missed behaved. Also located in this area we will visit the remnants of the former Liepaja Russian Tsar's era Fortifications that once encircled the City of Liepaja. And not far from Battery Nr. 3 which is along the Baltic Sea coast line is the Northern Breakwater that extends some 1800 meters "5905.512 feet" from the shore line out into the Baltic  Sea. From the end of the breakwater you get a full view of Liepaja coast line, Battery Nr 3 and a view of the former outer defenses and breakwaters.
 
With advance arrangements, you can take a charter boat trip along both canals, the Trade Canal "Tirdzniecibas kanāls" and the Karosta Naval Port Canal "Karostas kanāls", which is a man made canal, including a view of the underside of the Kalpaka Swing Bridge, that turns 90 degrees when open, that crosses Karosta Canal. You will then head to Karosta Naval Port inter harbor area and see the former Soviet Union submarine covered dock, that was constructed to prevent the spying eyes of the United Stated satellites fly over's. As you approach the inter harbor you can see Liepaja petroleum farm that was built during the Russian Tsar era the only thing that is missing is the former coal bunkers that were used during that period. You will also see a dry dock that is setting just off shore of the two dry docks of what was the former ship building yard and their dry docks. These are only a few of the sights you will see while on your charter boat trip.
 
These are only a few of the hundreds of historical sights you will be able to see while visiting Liepaja.
