a very impressive site, very tall, lovely surroundings, a big park next to it, trees ponds, lots of grass, benches. Also the statue Freedom Monument is location on a wide area, no traffic allowed except on foot.

This statue is nice for a picture, it also it a nice middle point between the old and "new" city. Easy landmark to find if you get lost!

Interesting monument. Buit after Latvia's first independence after WW1. Looks impressive, with the uniformed guards.

Whilst there are more attractive monuments around, when one learns the story behind this edifice you would wish the stone could tell its own tale.
It is amazing that the monument has survived all of the invading forces which would normally destroy such a symbol.

Right in the center of the beautiful park of Riga, it is an impressive monument that can be seen from most parts of the city.
