Riga: Barikādes Piemineklis

Barikades

Located on Jēkaba Iela (Jacob Street) is a pyramidal memorial which was unveiled in 2007 by the State President Vaira Vīķe-Freiberga. The monument is dedicated to those who lost their lives during the confrontations, known as The Barricades,  between Latvian and Soviet Union forces in 1991. The inscription details wording from a Latvian folk song.
