Liepaja

Sightseeing

Peter the Great House (Pētera I namiņš)

 Kungu 24 Liepaja Latvia     more than a year ago

Not only is this charming house one of Liepāja’s oldest buildings, it also has the distinction of having hosted the Russian tsar on his trip to Western Europe in 1697. Coincidentally, the historic house across the street (Kungu 26/Bāriņu 33) that now houses a weavers’ workshop was built only two years later and served as accommodation for King Charles XII of Sweden, the tsar’s rival during the Great Northern War (1699 - 1721).
