This square has an imposing Soviet-style statue. It's good to check it out if you are wandering around the Old Town and heading toward the river. Located near the bridge entrance you will get a nice view of the National Library on the other side...More

Good statue with a lot of history relating to it, but in a fairly poor location. Bit of a shame as not a lot of people will actually bother going to see it

Tribute to Latvian soldiers that joined Soviet army. Nothing besides that, but the monument is impressive.

This is obviously not the goal of your touristic choice, but you can see and learn it by the way to Old Town. The statue is enormous and talks about tragic and glorious pages of history.

The magnificent stone monument of Latvian riflemen is quite imposing in very crowded square. Situated very close to the museum of occupation and town hall, this is short of landmark for tourist buses. The statue are huge and good photo-op.

In this square you can see the statue which is okay but nothing special, and that's all. The square itself is not really nice.

This monument is very dominant and takes centre stage in a drab area on the outskirts of the old town. It is worth the visit to see the scale of this memorial and what it represents.
