Laima Clock (Laimas pulkstenis)

Satiekamies pie Laimas pulksteņa - let's meet at the Laima clock! The yellow-brown clock in front of the Freedom Monument has been a meeting place since it was erected by social democrats in 1924 so people wouldn't be late for work. For decades it has advertised Laima chocolate, and many a sweet romance has started here. The famous clock was repaired some years ago and its time is now synchronised twice daily by satellite.

Nice landmark, especially when lit up at night.Laima chocolate shops have big cardboard models of the clock, but I was hoping they'd sell small, working models as souvenirs. They should really market the clock on their products.Though all the Laima chocolate that I did buy almost made me have to pay excess baggage fees!
