Salaspils Memorial Ensemble, Salaspils

(4.4/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web)
In a quiet forest sits Salaspils Memorial Ensemble, created in memory of thousands who died in a concentration camp at this site. Menacing dark-gray stone statues represent suffering men, women, and children. A large marble block marks a massive grave while a metronome beats from under the ground, simulating heartbeats. Look for numerous toys scattered around the yard, a reminder of the children who perished here from hunger, cold, and disease. See Salaspils Memorial Ensemble and all Salaspils has to offer by arranging your trip with our Salaspils vacation route planner.
