Wall of candles



11th November is military triumph day in Latvia history - in 1919, Latvians defeated Bermont's army (German and Russian united forces) and saved independence of Latvia (country was proclaimed just year ago). It was like David's victory over Goliath. Every 11th November there is a tradition to come and leave candles at Riga castle wall. When I went around there, it has just started - these are just first people and candles, later the wall was full with candles and the square full with people.

  1. What a beautiful custom. This day must be both a day of celebration and sadness for your country.
