Look up to the top of Freedom Monument (Brivibas Piemineklis), a copper statue of Liberty, for the three stars held aloft on this high obelisk. The stars symbolize the three major regions of Latvia. Kārlis Zāle designed the 42 m (138 ft) high memorial as a tribute to soldiers killed during the Latvian War of Independence. The sculptures and the bas-reliefs at the foot of the obelisk represent heroes, heroines, and the common people. Notice an ancient warrior standing between two kneeling modern soldiers in the "guards of the fatherland." Catch the changing of the guard every hour. The monument makes a great benchmark for navigation in Riga.

Freedom Monument (Brivibas Piemineklis) Reviews
Vakker statue som du ikke klarer å ikke se hvis du er i nærheten. Pent innrettet plass rundt statuen også more »
旧市街の一角からも見える行きやすい場所です。派手な場所ではありませんが、少しながらラトビアの歴史を知ったので敬意をもって行きました。 more »It is a convenient place to see from the corner of the old town. Although it is not a flashy place, I went with respect because I knew the history of Latvia a little.
Historic place at the center of the city built on significance of Republic of Latvia. Interesting part is that you see two soldiers standing in front of the monument without even a move. Opposite to the monument you enter into the city center with all the food places.
Monumentally planned square and surroundings. I think it's one of the most popular symbolic places of beautiful Riga. Riverside Park and dozens of benches make it really attractive for citizens and tourists.
