Soviet Military Prison Dream Vacation
Jamaica? Been there. Orlando? Get serious. It's time to give that special someone a holiday vacation they won't forget. Yes, that's right - a trip to a genuine Soviet military prison.

Forbidding Liepaja Prison, in western Latvia (just 2-3 hours west of Riga), is your dream destination. There you will have these experiences, guaranteed by Baltic Adventures, Inc.:
- "Genuine military prison originally built by Tsar Nicholas I for the Russian Imperial fleet and later used by the Soviets – it hasn’t been modernised since! You really can feel how depressing and scary life was as a Red Army prisoner. Untouched since the Russians left…… and you arrived!"
- Solitary Confinement, Stark Prison Cells, Convict Photo & Prison Registration, Barking Soviet Prison Guards, Prison Uniforms, and Interrogation Suite

I can only hope that all of us who read A Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich and other literary classics will have this opportunity. Apparently, the experience is becoming popular with college kids and corporate team-builders looking to give their valued employees an unusual bonding experience.
Any other places or activities you'd like to sample? The world's entreprenuers are waiting to hear from you.
