(4.2/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
Liepāja Holy Trinity Lutheran Cathedral is a historical Lutheran cathedral in Liepāja, Latvia. The foundation stone of the church was laid in 1742 and on December 5, 1758, the church was solemnly consecrated. The church interior and exterior architecture is built in the late baroque style with classic features. The cathedral interior is characterized by its Rococo features and luxurious furnishings with wood carvings and gold plating. The altar is 13 metres high and the cathedral is particularly notable for its organ with 131 stops, 4 manuals and over 7000 pipes, making it the largest mechanical organ in the world until 1968. It was the first large mechanical pipe organ in Latvia and was built by Henrich Andreas Concius in 1779. In 1865–1866, the building underwent its first major reconstruction – the original draft tower was raised on the two upper floors to almost 55 metres high. In 1906, the church installed a clock mechanism. Several changes were also made to the sacristy behind the altar; a new one was added.Tours are offered around the cathedral and its 55 metre tower is said to offer scenic views of the city of Liepāja. The cathedral is also a major venue for concerts and exhibitions in the city and regularly hosts classical music concerts and arts displays.

  • Not my kind of church, but I must admit it is one of the key points in Liepaja, besides the prison and the northern forts. 
  • Nice and newly renovated church. Cool organ but at the time of the visit, it was colder in the Church than outside ... Please visit

  • The Cathedral is located in the Centre near the hotel Liva. Very old, you can listen to the body and certain days, for 5-10 euro. You are on the observation deck, height 49 m say, beautiful view. And yet they have merchandise is the same as everywhere else, only cheaper.
