Latvijas Okupācijas muzejs Reviews
Wat mij betreft een must see voor mensen die Riga komen bezoeken. Heel indrukwekkend en vooral ook erg aangrijpend om te zien welke gruwelijkheden het Letse volk heeft ondergaan in zowel de Duitse als... more »As for me a must see for people who come to visit Riga. Very impressive and especially very touching to see what atrocities the Latvian people have undergone in both the German and Russian occupation. The museum is small in size and through a lot of text the museum takes you through a timeline, along in this history. What I do find a disadvantage is the few interaction. It is mainly a lot of reading text on the wall and sometimes a movie fragment. In addition, it is a free museum to visit and they maintain everything using gratuities and gifts. This is of course also advisable to do this.
Tässä museossa on koko Latvian historian ajalta kaikki neuvosto miehityksestä ja natsi Saksan miehityksestä, mikäli historia kiinnostaa on tämä paikka tutustumisen arvoinen. more »This museum has throughout the history of Latvia all the Soviet occupation and Nazi occupation of Germany, if history is interested is this place worth a visit.
