Look up to the top of Freedom Monument, 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.

  • It is a huge monument, placed in the center of a big square. Very nice! You can sit at the square, and enjoy the views..

  • Superb example of its style, impressive monument right in the heart of the city park. Hope rumours of it's removal are untrue.

  • Right in the heart of the city. Beautifully decorated in the evening surrounded with lush green gardens. If you are in Riga, it’s impossible that you wouldn’t notice this 😇
  • It is the iconic place in Riga, after House of Blackheads. Somehow you will get the feel of patriotism when you are around or just passing by. Some other times it will be the landmark where you meet your friends on a sunny afternoon, when the place with be decorated with flowers and armed guards.
