It has an interesting history as well. All freedom monuments were destroyed by Stalin. This survived!

Its pretty boring pillar statue. It's alright, nothing special. Better than some, worse than others. It's so centrally located that when I was tourist I passed it often.

Freedom monument stands in the very heart of Riga with beautiful green parks surrounding it. Grab a coffee to go and walk around the canal :)

Very tall memorial to Latvian's who have fought or shrived for freedom. It is lit at night and very impressive after dark.

Good sight. North east of old town close to the German embassy.
Watch out for the ceremony of the guards.

The main monument in Riga
Jul 2020
The Freedom Monument is one of the main sights in Riga.

The 42-meter high memorial honoring soldiers killed during the Latvian War of Independence (1918–1920) was unveiled in 1935.

Letters 'R GA' in front of the monument has made it even a more popular place to take photos.

An ok monument
Jul 2020 • Solo
Well, it has an interesting history of how it was built on the donations of latvians from all around the globe, and the monument itself is quite beautiful. However you can't really make it the goal of your trip to Riga since there's a lot of more amazing places to see. I recommend visiting the Bastejkalns right next to it and going to Old Riga afterwards.
