"The Battle of Lāčplēsis" stele

The monument, created by sculptor Gaida Grundberga, honours the epic "Lāčplēsis" and its main hero, who wins the battle against the forces of darkness. Spīdala, who lived with her father Aizkrauklis in a castle on the banks of the Daugava River, also played an important role in the epic. Every year, on the Day of the Epiphany, Aizkrauklians gather at the monument to commemorate the heroes who fell in the fight for freedom.
