Welcome to Karosta!
If you should choose your travel destination, it is good idea to go to the place where many unique things can be seen – to Karosta. Unique in Latvia and the Baltic, in Europe and all around the world...


The Karosta Light Festival will take place this year on October 20, 21 and 22 in Redan. Light objects created by artists, zero-waste lamps made by students, Latvian singers, buffet, a fire show and various surprises.


Karosta Prison

The prison started functioning over 100 years ago. This is the only military prison in Europe open to tourists. The prison nobody has ever escaped from. Ghost Hunters International from the USA called Karosta Prison the most ghost haunted place in the world.


Explore Liepaja Fortress and history of the heroic battles for Liepaja in 1919! 



Karosta is a really unique and rare site not only for Latvia but also within the historical, architectural and urban construction framework worldwide. Karosta is one of the most unusual sightseeing objects in Latvia. You may like it or may not, but it will definitely impress you.


Buffet and souvenirs

In our authentic prison buffet we have warm pies and aromatic coffee, also rich hot food. And do not forget to try our special refreshments! You will be served by a real soviet-time buffet-lady.



Who can you surprise by staying overnight at a hotel? Here you have a chance to spend the night in a prison which is considered to be even more impressive than the Alcatraz in the USA, to sleep on a prison bunk or an iron bed, and to have a prison meal.



Karosta Light Festival calls Light Art artists to submit your proposal for participating in a festival in Latvia.
