One of the oldest Liepāja bridges – was built in 1906. It is a metal structure swing bridge and connects Karosta with the rest of Liepāja. It took about 5 minutes to open the bridge and let a ship through. Approximately one month before the bridge century there was an accident. The big ship ramed into the north part of bridge. That’s why the bridge is CLOSED AT THE MOMENT. Karosta is still accessible through Tosmare.
Liepaja is a beautiful and versatile city that unites the easy and uneasy heritage of the recent centuries, freedom and air of a seaport and pride for so many talented musicians and composers that came from here.
