The lighthouses of Liepaja are the first ones to welcome European sailors in Latvia. Liepaja is the third largest city in Latvia, situated between the sea and a lake. People have lived here for more than 750 years. The River Liva and village Liva were first mentioned in writing in 1253. Most probably the name comes from the word in the Liv language liiv, which means sand. In the beginning Liepaja Port was in the mouth of the river Liva, but it was necessary to move the port to another place several times because the Liva River valley was often covered in sand. The German name Libawe appeared for the first time in 1560, and from this name the modern Latvian name of Liepaja emerged. The name and boundaries of the city were officially approved on 18 March 1625. Liepaja has a unique cultural heritage of Swedish kings, German barons, Russian Tsars and Finnish Jeegers. For some time Liepaja has even been the Capital of Latvia. Liepaja attracts tourists with its beach and the sea, festivals and pubs, own symphony orchestra, organs and people.
    Some of the sights in Liepaja are famous worldwide:
" Organs of the St. Trinity Church - the biggest historically not changed mechanic organ in the world.
" St. Anna Church - the largest wooden alter in Latvia
" Karosta (The Naval Port) - unique military heritage of Tsarist Russia and Soviet Union
