When walking through old Riga, you should not miss this monument and the small city park on walking distance of it. It's an impressive monument, and stands for the freedom of Letland.

From far this looks majestic. If you have a good camera zoom in on the statue - its quote beautiful especially the 3 stars

The statue is worth the visit, especially if someone can tell you about the statue, or you have read about it. There are a lot of interesting details!

Our group had the luck to be invited inside the monument and scale the steps for a fine view. The changing of the guard on the hour is worth while waiting for.

You must see this monument, which is situated right in the middle of the town. This is a "must" in Riga, but you cannot miss it, if you walk into the old town.

The Freedom Monument is the symbol of Riga and is the start when you go to visit the old city. You can`t miss it.
