Monument of Freedom

The 42 meter high monument is topped by a Liberty Statue - a woman with three stars symbolizing regional parts of Latvia: Kurzeme, Vidzeme and Latgale. The author of this monument is Kārlis Zāle, it was built in 1935. Luckily, even the Soviets didn't dare topple this symbol during their reign, because the student of Karlis Zale – Vera Muhina, was against it, and now it once again represents Latvia's independence, where locals place flowers at the base to remember.
