A port city on Latvia's west coast, Liepaja is a city with a difference. It's swamped with rustic red-brick warehouses, torpedo boats are moored on its shores and there is an old prison as the main tourist eye-candy. It has one of the country's most stunning beaches on its apron and the city has spawned a disproportionate number of major Latvian musicians pumping out grungy music. Founded in the 13th Century, Liepaja is perched on the Baltic Sea with an ice-free port. It's the largest city in the Kurzeme Region with a population of around the 69,443 mark. It's known as the "City where the wind is born" because of the constant sea breezes that blow and is now home to the largest wind farm in the country. Today it's where you can find coworking venues catering to its intrepid and innovative locals who are over working from local cafes.
The history buff will get excited in this city, as there is a plethora of different architectural styles from wooden houses to Soviet-era apartments, Art Nouveau buildings to lush green parks for long leisurely strolls. There are plenty of churches to pop into to say a little prayer for the success of your startup and the Seaside Park area with its white sandy beaches is perfect for a bit of sun worshipping. Monuments abound around the city and there is a former secret military encampment that is a tourist magnet. This is an industrial city with numerous high tech plants, but it is mostly known for its coffee brand "Liepajas kafija", beer and sugar.
Latvia's startup ecosystem is thriving despite being in its early stages with many tech events held in the city. Its out-of-the-box thinkers are resilient and determined with 2011 being the year when things started to really take off for entrepreneurs. Coworking venues in Liepaja have become the place for the city's innovative souls to hang out in collaborative bliss, sharing ideas and connecting with likeminded people.
