The Laima Clock
The Laima Clock was erected in 1924 with a practical purpose: to help inhabitants of Rīga come to work exactly on time. In 1936 the clock was decorated with the name and logotype of the country’s largest confectionery manufacturer, "Laima".
After the World War II, the clock was used for displaying political information. In 1999, the Laima Clock was fully renovated and returned to its look of the 1930s. The square by the Laima Clock is now one of the most popular meeting spots both among the locals and the visitors of the city.
