  • What else to say .... Pathetic! Read the history, note the invoice of the statue and then let me know ..... only plus watching from the other side take great pictures to freeze solid

  • We nearly missed this and took some finding!!! As my husband is named Christopher we had to find it, lovely history and tale to it!!  more »
  • It was a place of meeting with the Guide and its designation of this dostoprima. Himself of no artistic value it is not. Interesting legend associated with it. St. Christoph is paromschik, organizing the crossing from one bank of the Daugava River on the other. One little boy asked to forward it to the other side, he planted it on his shoulder and went to Wade. With each step the burden was becoming harder, and when he reached the other side, then dropped without force. And all why? Because our sins serious pulled us down and he ceased to be possible:) This is the story. The original, by the way, is in the Museum of the history of Riga and navigation across the road.
