Memorial for the Flooded Houses of Dole Island

After the construction of Rīga Hydroelectric Power Plant, about 180 houses and farms were left underwater not only on Dole Island but also on the banks of the Daugava River in Ķekava and Salaspils. The people who were forced to leave their homes and their descendants wanted to create a memorial place for the lost land. A memorial created by sculptor V. Barkāns can now be viewed on the bank of the Daugava.

In the territory of the Daugava Museum, Dole Island, Salaspils municipality.
