On November 18, 2018, the Republic of Latvia celebrates 100 years since becoming an independent nation.
The history of Latvia is a complex one, full of dramatic twists and lucky turns, but one element is always at the core of it all - our striving for Freedom. With arms in a battlefield, singing revolutions, or national crowd-funding projects, this is our way of saying: "We all understand what freedom means, as she begins in every one of us". One testimony to that - the story of our Freedom Monument.
Please enjoy this video as we celebrate Latvia’s 100th birthday and look forward to the next centenary as a free, democratic and prosperous European nation.
