Freedom Monument (Brivibas Piemineklis)

7 reviews of Freedom Monument (Brivibas Piemineklis)

María Carmen García Moraleda

Represents all Latvians


If there is one monument that represents all Latvians, it's that of Liberty. He stood as a symbol against the regime of Tsar Peter I during the Russian occupation. Symbolically the monument represents the Latvian people's liberation from foreign occupiers. It was inaugurated in 1935 and is a total of 42 meters high, but Liberty himself is only 9 meters high. Below, there are a group of sculptures grouped into four sections which symbolize justice, family, guardians of the homeland, and culture. Finally, there is another group of 4 gray granite sculptures, showing a person breaking chains, the Vaidelots, a bear hunter, and the apotheosis of Latvia.
