WAR PORT (KAROSTA) exclusive


New member
Karosta translates as War Port (or Navy Harbor). It is located in the west of Latvia, in the city of Liepaja. Karosta used to be a secret military town for the Russian Empire, and later on for the Soviets. As Latvia regained its independence in 1991, the Soviet army had to leave Karosta. As a consequence, the population dropped dramatically from 25 000 to 6 000 inhabitants and the town has fallen into a state of partial despair.
In 2013 we shoot architecture vision competition, and now i made short directors cut video version on it,

This is part of my local city Liepaja!

Wow! amazing to see a city like this in disrepair. Your slider moves are great. Especially liked those bizarre shots of the buildings falling into the ocean.Really eye-opening to see such a different part of the world.

War Port might make a good name for a metal band?
