About Freedom Monument, Riga

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.
