Soviet Bunker in Ligatne

Today me and my friends visited the Soviet bunker in Ligatne, Latvia. It was a very interesting visit, considering the complicated Latvian history and the fact that we could get to know some of the details of it. The scary part of it is that all of it is still working, people have 24-hour shifts in there and most of what happens there is top secret so I don't even fully know what I saw and what I didn't! Now I'm just going to show you a few pictures I've taken in the bunker:

Later we went hiking in the beauty of Latvian nature. I admired the river Gauja and Amata. We saw the Zvarte rock from above. The rock itself has a story connected to it. Just like on some other pagan rocks, a legend says there used to be meetings of devils teaching witches how to fly on their broomsticks.



Here is my Latvian language course group and me among them :) I must tell you another fun fact - so far, Latvian people seem to be a very kind nation. Looks like I will have to try hitch-hiking in this country! :)

  1. gosh, Latvian nature totally reminds me of Estonian nature. we have this place called "Taevaskoja" and it's very similar to the place in your photos.
    oh and the first place you visited looks super interesting since I really like historical sights.
