Fakten

  • The monument is topped with the statue of Liberty, holding three stars representing three historical regions of Latvia - Kurzeme, Vidzeme and Latgale.
  • The monument was planned in the early 1920s to commemorate the creation of the Latvian state.
  • In 1944 a pilot was sent to drop a bomb on the monument, but he missed and dropped it on the "Hotel de Rome" next to the monument.
  • Latvia's fourth historical region - Zemgale, located south of Riga - is missing from the representation at the top of the monument.
  • The monument's sculptor was Karlis Zale, one of the most prominent sculptors in the National Romanticism style of Latvia.
  • A few decades later the architect of this monument, Ernests Stalbergs, was required to make a monument to Lenin. Both statues stood with their backs to each other until Lenin was removed in 1991.
