interesting modern sculpture, but you need a little background in Latvian poetry to appreciate the point. next to the beach, and surrounded by a little wall you can sit on and have a snack while contemplating how times change.

The Brothers' Cemetery (Latvian: Brāļu Kapi), also sometimes referred to in English as the Common Graves or simply as the Military Cemetery, is a military cemetery and national monument. The cemetery is a memorial and burial ground for thousands of Latvian soldiers who were killed between 1915 and 1920 in World War I and the Latvian War of Independence.

This is another awe inspiring place. Once the location of a concentration camp, now an indellible reminder of the suffering experienc ed here and throught much of Europe during WWII. If you are near Riga, this is a must to visit. Make sure you gointo the museum, whcih appears simply as a wall, as you aproach.

Walking around Old Town Riga and came across this ghost statue in an alcove near the Swedish Gate. Could only find a sign about it being part of a public art program, but not an explanation of the piece itself. It does remind you of all the soldiers that passed through this gate and others that walked the city over the centuries.

Completed in 1935 to commemorate Latvian independence, this symbolic statue in Old Town shows the image of Liberty holding three stars in her outstretched hands, symbolizing unity of the country.
Very nice green park nearby, I love Riga and it’s architecture. Easy to find this monument and it helps to be oriented in the city.
