St Mary's Dome Cathedral Tours

St Mary's Dome Cathedral
St. Mary’s Dome Cathedral, also known simply as Riga Cathedral, is one of the best known landmarks in Latvia. Built near the Daugava River in 1211 by Bishop Albert of Riga, it is the largest medieval church in the Baltics and is the seat of the Archbishop of Riga. The cathedral is also known for its organ, built by E.F. Walcker & Sons in 1882 and considered one of the most valuable historic pipe organs in the world. Instead of a cross, the cathedral’s tower is decorated with a rooster. During Soviet times, when religious services were prohibited, the cathedral was instead used as a concert hall.

Practical Info

The cathedral is located in Riga’s Old City, within easy walking distance of both the train station and many tourist hotels. Services are held on Sundays at 12 p.m. and on weekdays and Saturdays at 8 a.m. 
Address: Herdera laukums 6, Riga LV-1050, Latvia

Det beste av Riga, en privat rundtur i Gamlebyen På NORSK

Turen tar deg med på en reise i tiden og introduserer med Rigas rike historie. Turen starter fra den eldste delen av Gamlebyen på Kloster gården (Konventgården). Deretter går vi til Rådhusplassen hvor statuen av ridaren Roland markerer byens sentrum. Som den neste kommer Domkirkeplassen hvor det er mulig å se hvor mye gatenivået har endret seg i løpet av århundrene. Så kommer vi til Livplassen hvor vi må kikke opp for å få øye på en katt på taket, hyrden og en gutt som leser en bok. Den gamle bydelen i Riga har mange lag - den forbinder det gamle og det moderne som bidrar til å forstå Lettlands historie og folket som bor her.
