Geocache Description:

Dambis Liepajas ezera
Maksligi no metalurga izdežiem un šlakas veidota izstiepta pussala/laipa. Padomju laikos bija iecerets izveidot dambi, kas sadalitu Liepajas ezeru, tadejadi pasargajot no piesarnojuma, ko nes metalurga notekudeni. Acimredzot, vesturisko parmainu un dabas aktivistu iebildumu del, šis darbs savulaik nav pabeigts. Tagad ta ir savdabiga pastaigu vieta, lidziga molam, kur visapkart verojams ezera udens un taja mitošie putni, visbiežak gulbji. Vienigi jarekinas ar to, ka pirms šis laipas naksies škersot Zirgu salu (Tauta saukto "Sudu salu"), kura agrak kalpojusi par zirgu kapsetu, bet nesenos laikos par atkritumu izgaztuvi. Bet visapkart sala ir diezgan aizaugusi, tikai vietam un neuzbazigi ir redzamas ši fakta liecibas. Te paveras skats uz Liepajas industrialo fasadi, kas piedod ipašu romantiku šim vietam. Vislabakais apmeklejuma laiks - starpsezona, rudeni vai pavasari. Tad noskana ir atbilstoša un ir lielaka iespeja sastapt gulbjus. Izaicini sevi aiziet lidz mola galam.

Liepaja Lake Dam
Artificially from the metal factory „Metalurgs” dross formed a peninsula stretching / plank. During Soviet times, was intended to create a dam, which should divide Liepaja Lake, thus preventing contamination by sewage of Metalurgs. Obviously, because of historical changes and nature activists’ objections, this work is not finished. Now it is peculiar walking place similar to breakwater, where all around is lake water with dwelling birds, mostly swans. Only have to consider that before reaching the footbridge have to cross Horse Island (so called "shit island"), which formerly served as a horse cemetery, but in recent times, the waste dump. But all around the island is pretty overgrown, only somewhere are visible evidences of this fact.
Here you can see the view of Liepaja industrial facade which gives a special romantic to these places. The best time to visit – in between the seasons, autumn or spring. Then the feeling is appropriate, and there is bigger chance to encounter swans. Challenge yourself to go all the way to the end of breakwater.
