Things are not going easily at the moment, but with your help we will continue to build the Garden of Destiny – relentlessly and irreversibly. We are attempting to complete it as a gift to Latvia on her 100th birthday. If by chance we do not complete it on time, there is no cause for concern. Construction of St. Peter’s Church in Riga took a total of 282 years. It will not take us that long.
Prof. Janis Stradins, Member of the Board
The very location is symbolic – the site of the Garden of Destiny is the former Riga-Moscow Highway which took thousands of people to Russia. May our new roads never take us away from Latvia! Accounts with the past must be settled on this island in our river of destiny, the Daugava.
