Nice shot, Ainars, with the colour of the statues giving a bit of warmth to that cold-looking landscape!

There is 15 young womens who symbolizes 15 countries + Russia(?) merged once under soviet flag. I walk around this fountain and tried understand, which one lady was from Latvia, but I can't. :(

But might be this is good, than noone can recognize Latvia figure in this? :DD After hard refurbishing, restoration job might be this fountain lost first ideological sensivity??

Now this fountain is not anymore cold looking monument, but just great park entertainer!
