It is considered the largest medieval church in the Baltic states. The organ was built by the company EF Walcker & Sons in 1882-83, and was inaugurated on 31 January 1884. The organ has 4 manual keyboards and a pedal keyboard, with 7000 tubes. It is considered the third largest tubular organ in the world. During the day there are several concerts of religious music taking advantage of the good acoustics of the temple. The red brick construction stands out in the square in which it is inserted.
Специально приезжали в Ригу, чтоб посетить концерт в Домском соборе. Билеты бронировали заранее в интернете. Очень понравилось. more »Specially came to Riga to attend a concert in the Dome Cathedral. Tickets booked in advance on the Internet. Loved.
Riga Cathedral is a very peaceful place to visit. Massive building of worship in the heart of Riga old town surrounded by people watching in nearby cafes
The most impressive Baltic cathedral, which shows its layers of history starting the Catholic German knights beginnings to the advent of Protestantism and the transformations henceforth. It is still active church, but it can be visited and hosts a very rich museum.
