WAR PORT GOODS STILL HERE, MAKING STORY`S AND LIVING THEY SECOND LIFE.
WAR PORT TREASURES is a shop located in Karosta/WAR PORT, Karosta was built as an independent city area, originated during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In 1890 to the north of Liepāja city, the massive construction of fortifications and a military camp was begun. The official order to start building was given by Russian Tsar Alexander III.
His son, Tsar Nicholas II, named the new base Port of Alexander III. But during the time of the first Latvian independence this place was more and more often referred to as the Kara Osta (War Port). The port of Alexander III was a fully autonomous, populated area with its own infrastructure, electricity power plant, sewage system, churches and schools.
During the Soviet time WAR PORT was a closed and covert zone with no admission even for the citizens of Liepāja.
WAR PORT is a northern neighborhood which occupies one third of Liepāja city.
It is a spectacular, paradoxical and unique site not only in Latvia but also in the world’s history and architecture.
Its environment reflects the interaction of tsarist Russia military elegance and Soviet militarism.
