Freedom Monument - Review
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.

Freedom Monument, Riga Reviews
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.
A monument with history. The sculptures around the base explain the story and I recommend that you go with a local guide to get the maximum background of the history of the place. It's a closed road so there is no vehicles, so easy to get around and take good photographs as you wish. If you are in riga it's hard to miss this.
Must visit and while there do the extra few meters to visit the Russian orthodox church nearby. Be aware that photography is not permitted in the church and women ages required to cover their heads supposedly the largest in the Baltic
It's a monument. Looks nice. Now they have added info plaques on the ground that tell a little bit about it.
Monument of pure beauty. Overlooking the city. Great girl holding the stars
