From the highest places of Riga - Dzeguzkalns, intruders have always looked how to intrude Riga. Until 1975, Riga invaders comming from Dzeguzkalns managed to draw tanks and cannons in the very heart of the city - at the middle of the river Daugava.
„ Devil’s servants” - Riga defenders point to them with one cannon, that all the time has been placed near fortress of Livonian Order. Therefore, do not even think of touching the weapons!
