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.

  • Rigas liberty monument is definitely worth a visit. It gives a good impression on how Latvia has been occupied for many years. Interesting that the sculptures on the monument facing east are all in chains.

  • Is a memorial honouring soldiers killed during the Latvian War of Independence (1918–1920). It is considered an important symbol of the freedom, independence, and sovereignty of Latvia. Unveiled in 1935, the 42-metre high monument of granite, travertine, and copper often serves as the focal point of public gatherings and official ceremonies in Riga.

  • One of Latvian people cherished treasures. Built in 1935, the 42-metre (138ft). The statue was built by Latvian donations. The statue stands tall as the Latvia people and so does the brave soldiers guarding the Monument. You might even catch a time (1 hour is the time when they change. They also patrol 1. after 30min) but they don't guard the Monument in extreme conditions (under -10°C {14°F} and above 25°C {77°F}

  • The Freedom Monument is a memorial located in Riga, Latvia, honouring soldiers killed during the Latvian War of Independence. It is considered an important symbol of the freedom, independence, and sovereignty of Latvia.

  • One of the must-see landmarks in Riga. Noy sure on which specific days, but if you are lucky, you might see guards standing and doing a little changeover march in front of the monument. Beautiful flowerbeds around the monument.
