“Freedom replaces Russian ruler”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

This monument was erected in 1935 where a statue of a Russian ruler stood before. Two soldiers stand guard at the monument through the day. Take advantage to also visit the Opera House and the Laima clock near by.

“A must”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

You can hardly miss it if you leave the old town and head north. The surprising thing is that this monument was rised in the 1930ies. In Latvias first freedom period. And the soviets let it stay there for all the 50 years of occupation. Still people leave flowers there in remembrance for those who gave their lives for a free LAtvia

“Beautiful monument”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

The freedom monument was very impressive and artfully carved. It was also very cool to see the soldiers guarding the monument. The surrounding park was also beautiful and great for a romantic walk.
