  • The first thing you realize when you go down here with the joyful and cheerful town hall square, is leaving you feeling of internal comfort. For me, this was due not only to the fact that he was here in typical winter weather when Riga was neither snowflakes on the sidewalk and on the square, and with lead-grey sky "whipping" drizzle. Add more wind shear with Daugava-and in terms of the weather pattern will be exhaustive. But the cause of psychological inconvenience caused on this area, where even the day you could rarely notice a lone passerby some artifice ethos here. When carefully looked around-the first thing that came to mind is a novel by Stendhal's "red and black". That's right! Monument of red marble or granite (not understand it) Latvian Red riflemen and almost black, the Museum of the occupation of Latvia. Probably the authors of this "composition" clearly counted on some Visual political effect. The game "flowers" and contrasting them with each other, ochividno, they envisioned the show as "it all began" and "how it all ended." But one idea, but the reality is different. So, abstracting from any political component, give my opinion simple tourist-failed. Came out very Sulky, bored and not comfortable. The black Museum (Guide, said Latvians call him "Barack on chicken legs") that does not call for any psychological understanding of the intended architectural composition. It just crushes and suppresses what is called "the whole landscape around and its inhabitants! As a result, an area almost always deserted (although the place itself is very nice-overlooks the river and offers a nice view on a large part of the opposite bank of the river Daugava, including at the Museum of the history of rail transport, Radisson Hotel, etc.). Here are a few inhabitants and even fewer tourists. This does not pulls.

  • The area itself is in General about anything. Practically a landmark on the bridge and pier for River trips on the Daugava River. And here is a monument to the Red Latvian Red riflemen is a serious work of red granite. I am personally impressed by the monument-strict massive monument without superfluous details, returns to a lost era.

  • Tribute to Latvian soldiers that joined Soviet army. Nothing besides that, but the monument is impressive.  more »
