A legend says a Couronian king is
buried here and people out of great respect for him have brought
soil with their hats and aprons to form a hill above the place
where king was buried. With support from Association of Latvians a
town park with trees and decorative shrub and a romantic wooden
stairway with 122 steps was built on Ķēniņkalns
(King's hill) in the end of 19th century.
"Ķeizardārzs" or "Pilsētas dārzs" as it was
called by citizens quickly became a favorite place for walks and
recreation. In 1958 the Festivāla square was built. Since
November 16., 1996 there is a monument in Ķēniņkalns called
"Koklētājs". The monument that is dedicated to fallen freedom
fighters of Latvia was initially designed by Kārlis Zemdega though
finished by sculptor Vilnis Titāns. Some things still remind of the
past - the old and the new Fabrika street, former wool factory and
the war prison from the 2nd World war "Moku
kambari" (1944 - 1945). By the foot of the Ķēniņkalns
almost 100 years old building lies - "Talsu tautas nams"
(People house of Talsi) that was built from funds raised by
citizens of Talsi as a Commonwealth house. Tourism information
center of Talsi district is located in this building. The town
square that attracts Rally of Talsi fans in the spring, town
festival guests in July and Dižmāra fair merchants in August was
built in the beginning of the 1960ies. Since 1996 the front of the
house on 25 Lielā Street is decorated by a stylized ethnographic
ornament "Talsu saulīte".
