Historical: Liepāja was a closed city during the Soviet era as they set up the Baltic naval base and nuclear weapon warehouses. The Beberliņ sandpit was dug out to extract sand used for constructing underground warehouses. The port was completely closed to commercial traffic in 1967 and a third of the city was taken up with a Soviet naval base with 26.000 military staff. The 14th Submarine Squad of the USSR's Baltic Fleet (14 эскадрилья ЛиВМБ ДКБФ, call sign "Комплекс") was stationed at Liepaja with 16 subs types: 613, 629a, 651; as was the 6th group of Rear Supply of the Baltic Fleet, and the 81st Design Bureau and Reserve Command Center.
