Description
Soaring over both the town of Riga and the river Daugava, Riga Cathedral stands as the largest Medieval church in the Baltics. Built at the dawn of the 13th century by Bishop Albert of Riga, the ... Read more
cathedral served as the home for the great Latvian religious figures David and George Caspari. Marvel at the cathedral's ornate stonework and gorgeous stained-glass windows as well as its immense organ, which consists of over 6,700 pipes. If you travel to Riga during the Christmas holidays, visit the cathedral to hear a concert by the famed Riga Dom Cathedral Boys' Choir.

There' several different cathedrals in Riga - one of seemingly all denominations of Christianity. The Evangelical Lutheran one is one of the most impressive, with tall spires and pointy arches adorning the inside.

If you are interested in cultures and want to learn about Latvian music come over any day at 12 during the summer season. You can enjoy an organ concert by Latvian performers. There is a small admission you have to pay but it is worth it. Make sure you walk around the cathedral after the concert is finished.

This huge medieval church is a very beautiful sight. You have to pay something to go in, but not much.

The cathedral was often both the civic and religious heart of Europe's Old World cities. Riga's 'Dom' - an iconic medieval church towering over the center of the old city, Vecriga - makes it easy to see why. Imposing, gorgeous, and supremely appropriate to its setting, it's a great subject for photography. The interior of the building is less impressive, but admission is quite cheap if you're keen.
