I just missed the changing of the guard when I got here. And I missed by one day the 100th anniversary of Latvian independence: doubtless there was a ceremony here.

I love these tokens, so common in Eastern Europe. This one is particularly striking as behind it see buildings, and in front a lovely green park.

This monument towers over the surrounding streets. The most interesting part is the changing of the guard on the hour between 10am and 4pm

We were there on Independence Day which was great. Free concert, National costumes and beautiful flowers. The changing of the guard ceremony is fun to watch. Nearby parks are lovely.
