This is an imposing monument, located next to the Latvian occupation museum.
The light brown hue of the monument makes it even more dramatic.

Controversial monument originally erected in 1970 for the red riflemen (pro USSR). Now dedicated to all riflemen, both red and white. made from red granite in a typical soviet style.

In the middle of the same-name square stands a controversial big red granite statue that is dedicated to the Latvian Red Riflemen who were originally a military formation of the Imperial Russian Army starting in 1915 in Latvia in order to defend Baltic territories against Germans in World War I.

This is a rather ordinary statue. Primarily something worth your time if you are already interested.

This location is the Latvian Riflemen Monument but incorrectly labelled as just 'Riga'.The monument remembers the military group formed in 1915 as part of the Russian Imperial Army to defend the Baltic States against the Germans in WW 1. Originally volunteers they were later conscripted and some 40,000 joined.Later they were a divided group some supporting the Russians and some not.It is an impressive monument but in a poorly presented square on the edge of the Old Town.Worth a look.

This is a controversial monument that stands in the center of old Riga. It originally commemorates the Latvian red riflemen some of whom later became Lenin's bodyguards. Some locals think that the monument should be torn down as it is associated with the Soviets but now it commemorates all Latvian Riflemen.

This monument is today dedicated to all the riflemen who fell during the Russian occupation which ended in 1991. Symbolic but rather ordinary sculpture.
