Northern Forts [Ziemeļu forti]

Northern Forts
A long system of concrete fortifications were once part of the Naval Port’s defences, but they were destroyed after a friendship and cooperation agreement was signed with Germany in 1908. It’s not known if the tsar later pondered the irony of blowing up such massive defences on the eve of WWI, but of course it's always easy to make jokes with hindsight. Today, you can cautiously walk through the ruins and watch buildings, pillboxes and concrete staircases slowly recede into the sea. Similar forts are visible in the south of Liepāja where Klaipēdas and Ganību streets meet.
