About Me
My name is Ilze Žaime, and I am a leather worker. I love living in Liepaja because I grew up here, and I see how it's changing year by year - changing in a good way!

You have to go to
The new concert hall Great Amber. It opened in November 2015 and is the newest landmark for the whole region of Kurzeme. There are great classical music concerts every week, as well as a great view from the restaurant/cocktail bar on the 7th floor.
Here's one fun activity you can do
Spend an extreme night at Karosta's Prision! See how life was there. If you believe in ghost stories - even better! http://karostascietums.lv/en/nights-lodging-in-karosta-prison/
Don't forget to check out one of my favorite places
One of my favorite places in Liepaja is the historical neghbourhood of Karosta. It used to be a military area that was once closed off to visitors, but it's been connected to the rest of the town again for the last 20 years. It has majestic Orthodox cathedral and one of the most visited museums in the Baltic states: Karosta's Prision. The best part of it is the wild sea coast, with ruins from WWII partly in the water.
Enjoy a meal at my favorite restaurant
Cafe/bar/restourant Kursas Putni offers traditional Latvian cuisine. It's a place where you can find a great local atmosphere and feel like you're at home. They always play Latvian music, live music on weekends, and you can also play traditional board games. All drinks offered in Kursas Putni (wine, beer, coffee and tea) are made in Latvia as well. It's located in the old town of Liepaja.
Here's a doable bucket list for you to do in one day
1. Climb the highest church tower to have a great view over the town.
2. Go to the historical market place and find fleshly baked bread and locally grown fruits and vegetables.
3. Have a quick swim in the cold Baltic Sea.
4. Spend a few hours outside the center to go to Karosta and see some history of this military neighbourhood.
5. Rent a bike and enjoy our seaside park, follow the bike paths to explore the town.
6. Enjoy nightlife in the legendary club Fontaine Palace (open 24 hours per day, 365 days per year).
7. Go bird watching from the tower in the middle of Liepaja's lake.
My extra insider tip for you is
Come and visit Liepaja during the best season - summer! That's when the sun spoils us the most, and you can truly enjoy the Baltic Sea. That's the time of beach festivals as well.
