Riga - Liepāja

Travel by car:  Rīga - Liepāja - Liepāja Naval Port - Lake Pape Nature Park
Points of interest en route: The St Trinity Orthodox Cathedral, Rose Square, Zivju Street, the Tsar Peter the Great hut, and the Liepāja Naval Port. At the Pape Nature Park - the Pape Nature House, the bird-watching tower, and the herd of wild horses.
Cycling through the Liepāja Naval Port (Karosta). The route starts and ends at the Kalpaks bridge - the length of the route is up to 10 km. The Naval Port is one of Latvia’s most unusual aspects of Soviet and industrial heritage. Worth your attention are the Kalpaks bridge (the only one of its kind in Latvia), the Naval Officers’ House, the Northern Pier, Battery No. 3 on the shore of the Baltic Sea, the St Nicholas Orthodox Cathedral (the largest of its kind), and the port itself, which presents a contrast between the Soviet era and the earlier historical period. The territory of the Naval Port is well marked with directions to the most popular tourist facilities, but the bicycle route is not marked out. Our map offers just one possible option.
Overnight in a guest house in the area of Liepāja.
