The Freedom Route

Illustration of Freedom Route

The route along Latvia’s Western shore winds through Bernāti, Liepāja, Vērgale and Pāvilosta, telling a story of yearning for freedom and longing to see what lies beyond the horizon. For thousands of years, this land was home to the seafaring Curonians; it provided shelter to the newly born Latvia’s first provisional government in 1919; and it came alive with the voices of Latvian musicians singing freedom songs at the Liepājas dzintars festival.
