In the 1960s, the Soviets turned in Liepaja city on military, closing all commercial traffic and the closure of the city for all but the Soviet military 25,000 or more. Latvia regained its independence with the collapse of the Soviet Union, and in 1990, began to recover as an independent country, reversing Liepaja for a free city.
