At the deck of the ship "Afanasij Nikitin" in Liepāja, Latvia

Trade or Tirdzniecibas canal divides the city into two parts, connecting the sea with Liepaja lake. For centuries it has played an important role in the economical life of the city. Canal, as a gold vein, has attracted numerous entrepreneurs, who could use its advantages in their businesses – sawyers, dockers, fishermen, producers.

Not just a wharf and a place of ceremonial welcome of high standing people, the canal has always been a pride of townsfolk and a place to show to Liepaja's guests.

Come to spend some time at the canal on the Promenade, to feel its measured rhythm and easy mood, sip something refreshing, listen to relaxed chats of people and sea-gulls and watch fishermen's daily life.
