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.

Riga Cathedral Reviews

Very nice old temple! Its specialty is a 'cloistering' of a large courtyard with many exhibited church items in the heart of Riga! The baroque organ, which is extremely beautiful, is definitely worth a look!
A must visit for every foreigner coming to Riga. The church unites centuries of history and the thrilling story of Riga in a nutshell. Pay special attention to the cloistered courtyard. It holds more than just a few centuries of Riga, it’s the last 400 years diary harmfully learning the differences between political interests and human friendliness. Come here for a huge load of Riga’s history.
