The memorial stone is set in Vasilova, on the left side of the highway Daugavpils-Rezekne, at the place where Vasilova halfmanor is located. The father of Janis Rainis Krisjanis Pliekshan rented the halfmanor in Vasilova since 1981.

Vasiļova, located somewhere on the edge of the then-Warsaw-Petersburg highway, was about 25 km from Daugavpils, as written by Raina’s elder sister, Līze Pliekšāne, “was heavily lowered, small”. In 1883 Krišjānis Pliekšāns began to rent Jasmuiza and Vasiļov left under control of his wife.
