Laima clock in Sigulda symbolises those values for what the legendary Laima clock serves in Riga — a meeting place encircled with love.
The final improvement works to set up the clock and the renovated Sigulda station and its square took place today so that the unique Laima clock, created specially for Sigulda, could be unveiled on 1 September, 21:00. Sigulda acquired the clock as a prize together with the title City of Love as a result of people’s vote two years ago when AS Laima celebrated its 140th anniversary. Laima clock in Sigulda will symbolise those values for what the legendary Laima clock serves in Riga — a meeting place encircled with love. At the same time the clock will serve as a messenger for those values of Sigulda that attract travellers, bring closer friends and families, enjoying the golden autumn and the time of bird-cherry blossoming in Sigulda. Latvian designer Arvis Sproģis is the author of the clock.
