SEE Worth seeing

Commemorative mark Sail of Hope

The author of the project, sculptor Ģirts Burvis, has created this commemorative mark of a sail of hope as a symbol of remembrance of the Latvian refugees. In fear of Soviet terror, locals from Sārnate as well as from a lot of other coastal areas in Kurzeme crossed the Baltic Sea in fishing boats to seek refuge in Gotland located 150 km away. The split that you can see in the monument represents the tenseness of separation, the difficulties to overcome and the pain of the Latvian nation abroad.
