Somber, and reflective. Highlights the cost of freedom. Simple epitaphs - Unknown Latvian who died in a Gulag - highlight the loss this nation has felt. Two hours which highlight how lucky we are.

This is definitely worth a visit. It is well tended and a beautiful tribute to those who gave their lives for their country. There is a sense of peace as you wander around and the sculptures are quite something. Take the time to visit.
