Nice little square to take a rest in the sunshine, surrounded with large prettily planted flowerbeds, full of vibrant tulips when I was there. Plenty of people seemed to take photos of the the statue, which was a gift from Rigas' sister city Bremen.

Our mistake of course knowing too little about it, but apparently a must go place for touching the four musicians while being photographed.

The sculpture is located on Skārņu Street between St. Peter's Church and the Convent Yard: as in the Grimm brothers adventure the donkey, dog, a cat and a cockerel standing on each other's backs. The sculpture "Bremen Town Musicians" is actually a political monument created...More

We were very glad to see the monument: the kid knows the story so it was very pleasant to "meet" familiar characters! It's next to St. Peter's church, so very easy to find.

The statue of Bremen Town Musicians captures the moment when they look inside the window at the bandits - that's why they're making faces and look a bit ugly. It's funny looking at the people trying to take pics, jumping as high as possible because...More

It took me a while to find it at first! Funny thing, that i bumped into it absolutely accidentally for the 2nd, 3rd and all to other times! It's a pretty tall sculpture so it's a bit hard to reach its top unless you have...More

The "Musicians of Bremen" statue, located between three major churches of Rīga: St. Peter (the highest: 123.25 m), St. John and St. George (the oldest: thirteenth century). This statue with four bronze animal figures is of course a reference to the eponymous tale of the...More

Probably most children have heard the fairy tale about the Townmusicans of Bremen. German children by any means. In Bremen they are commemorated with a sculpture. It is lovely, that the partnercity of Bremen, Riga, got their own set of townmusicans, which are looking through...More
