Golden Knight
Riga

The Golden Knight, standing in the middle passage - is a joke. And not on anybody, and above the Latvian President Vaira Vike-Freiberga, who once opposed the installation of the monument in the center of Riga Barclay de Tolly. The president said that if "some businessmen are eager to put different monuments, even put them in his yard." Gomberg and received - put the monument, which before the First World War standing on the corner of Valnu and Jacob, in his "yard."
