Prison Hotel In Lativa

Have you ever wonder how to live in a prison? If you want to satisfy your curiosity, then have your vacation in Liepaja, Latvia where you can find the Karosta Prison which has been converted into a hotel. This prison was used as a Nazi and Soviet military prison for most of the 20th century. It is now one of the tourist attractions in Latvia.

Today, this Karosta Prison is now a hotel where people can experience to be treated as a prisoner. But guest should sign an agreement that they are willing to be treated like  a prisoner before entering the facility. You can tour around the facility and you will know the history of the place, visit the prison museum, and you can book your stay in a prison cell. In the prison cell, you can only find a an old mattress laid over wooden boards and you will be served prison food, and you will be treated by the guards with verbal abuse. Failure to comply with the rules in the facility will lead for punishments which includes physical exercise and cleaning work in the facility.

The Karosta Prison Hotel is open from May 1st to October 30th every year. If you will go there out of season, better to inform them first.
