Riga Forest Cemetery Tour

Date: June 3, 2018

Time: 11:00 - 13:30

Location: Aizsaules iela 2, Rīga, LV-1026, Latvija

Visiting the Forest Cemetery of Riga is like leafing through a book where every page offers a fresh story with new characters. Sometimes the story is more like a comedy, sometimes a drama, but it is always interesting.

The Forest Cemetery was established in 1913 and took up the baton from the Great Cemetery of Riga as the main and the most prestigious final resting place in Riga. With time it grew to be the largest cemetery in Latvia, and the list of prominent people buried there does not seem to have an end. This is the last destination of presidents, ministers, generals, scandalous and controversial personalities, eccentric artists and victims of great tragedies. Thus the cemetery also offers a large amount of monuments in good condition several hundreds of which possess real artistic value.

We invite you to join the tour and meet the people who shaped an entire century for Latvia.
