There are many unique attractions around Liepaja and we’d recommend that you hire a car to see them. One of the most unusual is spending the night in one of the cells at the former Soviet prison in the Karosta part of the city.

Back in Liepaja, you’ll find that the city is renowned for the amber that can be found locally. The fossilised tree resin has been used in the town’s Amber Clock which is backlit at night giving the most beautiful light display. You can also visit the Craftsman’s House, a museum dedicated to amber production.
