Liepaja is known in Latvia as "the city where the wind is born," possibly due to the constant sea breeze. Liepaja was first mentioned in the mid-thirteenth century under the name Liva and it was under the rule of the Livonian Order. The name Liepaja was adopted about four hundred years later, when the city was already a port with developed trade relations not only with the neighboring countries, but also with Britain, France, the Netherlands, and Portugal. Later, it was part of Sweden and Poland before it was annexed by the Russian Empire in the eighteenth century. The city was shortly a capital of Latvia in the early twentieth century and part of the country until the forties, when it was added to the USSR. Now, it is a major city in Latvia.
Currently, Liepaja beaches are not as actively used as in other places (Riga and Jurmala), and there is no tourist infrastructure necessary for a modern resort. It is a rather industrial city with an important port. Some of the sights which are worth seeing include the City Museum, the Museum "House of artisans," the Museum "Metallurg," the Museum of the Occupation, and the Museum of the Jewish community. In the museum of the Karosta garrison guardhouse, visitors are invited to participate in the game "Escape from the Soviet Union."
