It is very well maintained and the sculptures are just beautiful especially when you factor in the effects of Mother Nature. The flower cart lined entrance to the cemetary is dramatic with a statue of Mother... More

This is definitely worth a visit. It is well tended and a beautiful tribute to those who gave their lives for their country. There is a sense of peace as you wander around and the sculptures are quite something. Take the time to visit.

I visited with local friend so she told me a bit of history of freedom movement and what certain sculptures means. Eternal fire is also nice to see.

This is part of the city cemetery and is dedicated to those who fought occupation and strived to free Latvia. It is a moving experience visiting the grave plaques and eternal flame. There is also the statue of Mother Latvia dominating the whole area. Take the number 8 tram up Valdermara Street for the city centre.
