The clock named after a confectionery company used to be a landmark meeting point for people in love (perhaps still is). It is close to the freedom monument. So if you are close by, you can have a quick look and take pictures.

This is near the Freedom Monument and between the parks where the canals run through. It is an interesting clock to see but nothing special to go out of your way for if you are short on time.

This historic landmark built in 1924 has a central location next to the Old Town near the Freedom Monument. In 1999 the clock went through a total reconstruction, bringing back the looks it had in the 30s. Laima is a Latvian confectionery company.

Cool clock to see whilst walking round Riga. Worth a look if you're nearby. Quite tall and stands out near a junction.

Get to this point in the hour. Then listen to the music box chimes that sing out. Then you can carry on, with maybe a more cheerful day!

This clock which originates from 1924 is named after a chocolate factory which I am told made rather good chocolate. I wouldn't know about that personally but the clock is an interesting enough artefact, worth a photo and very close to the freedom monument,.
