During the Soviet putsch in August 19-21st, 1991, when the OMON and Soviet Army troops captured the strategically broadcasting centre in Riga, the hidden studio of independent Latvian Radio was located in Salaspils. Journalists informed the country of the latest news right from Gaismas Street here. A memorial desk was unveiled at the building in 2006. Currently the building is a private property and it may only be seen from the outside.
