During the Soviet union era Latvia was a strategic place, because Latvia has the large western border of the Soviet Union. Not surprising that there were more than 1,000 Soviet troops concentrated in Latvia, which were located at about 600 sites. Nearly half a century, Latvia was under so called Iron Curtain.

Border Guards parts and items tank practice area, aviation landfilds, military airfields, weapons and ammunition storage facilities (including nuclear missiles), military intelligence and other objects concentrated in Latvia.
There was a special border regime along the sea coast of Baltics and Latvia. This means that only two decades ago Latvian coast line was a restricted area where you could stay only during daylight hours and only on limited sections of the coast.
