Located in the city centre, this seems to be a focal point for the nation from time to time. It is surrounded by parkland and was being well tended to by cleaners who were sweeping the streets.

The monument was unveiled on 18 November 1935.

The monument commemorates the fallen for the Latvian War of Independence (1918-1920)
