Riga Cathedral, Riga

4.1
At Riga Cathedral, see the famous Dome organ--the largest organ in the world at the time of its construction in the late 19th century. Bishop Albert of Riga built the church in the 13th century as archbishop's seat. The rooster on the top of the Baroque clock tower is a guardian of the Christian faith. The largest medieval church in the Baltic states, its appearance has changed many times. Walk around the cloisters to see the original foundations. The church also serves as a concert hall and showcases internationally renowned choirs.

  • Impressive church which has been nicely restored and maintained. Very grand exterior perfect for good photography.
  • Standing out like a sore thumb in the middle of old town. This epic Christian structure contains a monumental organ. Have a look around and remember to look up.
  • A beautiful Lutheran cathedral is a must visit in the city. Entrance to the cathedral costs €3 per person and this offers entrance to the gardens too. Be mindful that they don't allow any drinks inside and no calls are allowed within the premises.
  • Visit and be a part of history....great cathedral near market area....fantastic building of great importance💐
  • Finally the organ is already repaired.. looks beautiful.. one of "must see" in Riga.
