Priekule Russian World War II Military "Soviet Warrior's" Cemetery is the largest warrior’s cemetery in Latvia, where more than 23,000 Soviet Soldiers and Officers who fell during World War II are buried here. The relatives of the killed have been coming here for many years on the 9th of May to commemorate with flowers and take moment of silence with their closest ones. In the spring of 2011 the memorial place experienced extensive renovation works thanks to the financial support of the Russian Embassy.
 
 
On unfortunately this is all the information one can find on the Military Cemetery since the main building was locked when we were there. Guess it is only open on the 9th of May each year, which is when the Russians celebrates Victory Day or the end of the Great Patriotic War.
