The bronze monument “United for Latvia” (Māra of Latgale), located in the center of Atbrīvošanas aleja (City's main street), is one of the most recognizable symbols of Rezekne. It reflects the idea of the nation’s efforts to build and protect their country. It was unveiled in 1939. In 1940 it was pulled down, but restored for second time in 1943. Once again, in 1950 the ruling power demolished it. Finally, after Latvia’s independence, it was placed for third time in 1992. Latvian mythology personifies the goddess Māra as a provider of fertility for earth and a protection of life. The cross that is part of the ensemble is a symbol of the Christian faith. Overall, well made sculpture. Well kept. Popular and easy to spot. Near other sights. Nice surroundings. Worth a quick stop.

I visited this monument on Victory Day, which is the celebration of the defeat of Nazi Germany by the Russians. That moment made it memorable, but if you visit it on any other day, you won't spend long here. Interesting stop on your trip through town if you happen to be here.
