Aspazija (Aspasia) is the most famous Latvian female poet. She is also famous as life's companion of Rainis.

Upon their return to Independent Latvia in 1920, two of the most beautiful Riga boulevards were named in honor of Aspazija and Rainis.
She died in 1943 at home in Dubulti, Jurmala town. This monument is located few meters from her house.
