Stone head at the Livu Square in Old Riga

The stone head is a copy of the 5-6th century Livs idol, which was found in 1851 by a farmer ploughing the earth between Salaspils and Ikshkile, about 30 kilometres downstream of the Daugava.

More About Riga

Originated from a small fishermen village, for centuries Riga has been an important part of the trade chain between Russia and Western Europe. A lively crossroad of cultures and backgrounds for over 800 years, the historical centre of Riga has accumulated an impressive cultural baggage and today is justly included in the UNESCO’s World Heritage list.
