Latvia’s ghost town Skrunda-1

Since Feb 2016 it is possible to legally walk around Skrunda-1 ghost town in exchange for 4 EUR entrance fee. It is a 2h drive from Riga, so I recommend to start early.

We climbed roofs and explored the abandoned buildings for 3h, but managed to see maybe 50%, so you can easily spend the whole day there. Take good shoes and be careful – I ripped my jacket on a nail, and there are broken glasses everywhere. Some photos below:

  1. Cool post, thank you 🙂
    We plan to go there in March or April 2017.
    When did you go ?
    Did you register yourself somewhere before going there ?

    Many thanks

  2. Hello Kristaps,
    You mentioned that this awesome place will be closed soon, but maybe you know exactly if it’s still open? i would like to come in weekend of July 6-9.
    Thanks in advance.

    1. Sorry, but I don’t know, if it is still open. Would recommend to check foursquare checkins, instagram posts, facebook checkins and see if anyone has been there recently.
