  • The Memorial of to Latvian flintlock is in the western part of the historic old town of Riga between the banks of the Daugava River and the Latvian occupation Museum. Cathedral of you is on foot in less than two minutes. The monument was created in 1971 by artist Valdis Abbey's. It honors the Latvian guard, which has guarded during the Russian Revolution Lenin. The monumental work of red granite shows three of them. The monument is not beautiful, not detailed or especially, it is just big and showy. We've looked at for a moment there and then continued. The rest of the place is not worth visiting.

  • This monument is a bright sample of monumental Soviet art. Which, by the way, was not always poor. And that, in their best specimens is a monument of the era. I think that in this case, the Latvians have found an acceptable compromise to all remained in their seats-the Latvian Riflemen Division fought during World War 1. Oh, and that was with her after 1919 onwards can be gently lowered. Somehow. In General, inspected and area, and the monument. Any special emotions this place is not caused. Indeed, frequents why representatives of Latvia played an important role in the revolutionary events and organizations such as the Cheka-GPU? Perhaps simply believed in fairy tales, and their intellectual and professional potential temporarily used.

  • Remnant of Soviet architecture in the city, for this ill-digested by Latvians, but kept as a monument to Latvian Riflemen pays tribute to these brave soldiers. You should also visit the prospect on the river.
