Like most monuments and landmarks that symbolize the lands freedom from its oppressors, the Freedom Monument is a tall structure with a proud lady standing atop the column with three stars in her hand, one for each of the three regions of Latvia.
It’s the coming of these three regions that stood for the independent Latvia. During the time of annexations, the three regions were under different colonies and the Latvian struggle for independence was all about uniting these three regions. Latvia’s lady liberty is one of the city’s landmarks you definitely should not miss out on.
Don’t miss out on the change of guard that takes place on the hour every day, from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.

A beautiful place to visit. The adjoining park is also a must visit as from there you can go on a canal boat ride or also opt for renting the small paddle boats and enjoy. Do try and visit before 1pm as after that the guards would not be there. It would actually take a minute for anyone to realize that the guards standing there are real and not some mannequin. A good vibe to the whole place.
One of the main monuments in Riga, Latvia. It was built for the purpose of honouring soldiers killed during the Latvian War of Independence. It is a symbol of freedom and independence. The monument is surrounded by the beautiful park. There is an artificial canal which makes the park very nice place to have a rest. Also, some boat tours are offered, the prices are between 10-20 euro.
Cool looking monument, features Lady Liberty at the top. Not sure how often it happens and how long for but we saw two suited guards with their guns marching back and forth across the front of the monument which was good to see. Worth a stop to see this
Great piece of history especially was fantastic to see on their 100th anniversary of Independence
Great monument and history. Nice seeing it during fall.
