Freedom Monument

Brīvības iela, Riga
Designed by the famous Latvian architect Kārlis Zāle and constructed in 1935. The bronze casting of a woman (fondly nicknamed ‘Milda’ by the Latvian folk) holds up three golden stars in her hands, which symbolise three Latvian regions: Latgale, Kurzeme and Vidzeme. The guard of honour stands sentinel at the monument from 09.00 until 20.00.
