One of the largest piers in all of Europe extends more than a mile out into the Baltic Sea. You can walk its considerable length all the way to the end, where there’s a surreal view of the surrounding harbor as the mainland shrinks from sight.
The North Pier is part of Karosta, a ruined fortress in Liepaja leftover from Tsarist and Soviet Russia. It’s a huge system of countless bunkers, cannons, and other defenses, that once housed some 20,000 people. The giant breakwater pier was constructed to protect the area from storm waves, fortified with concrete tripods.
