"Largest Cathedral in the Baltics"

Soaring high and proud over the Daugava River, Riga Cathedral is one of the most emblematic masterpieces of the city’s Old Town. With its foundation stone having been laid in 1211, the cathedral was built under the orders of bishop Albert of Riga. Regarded as one of the largest of its kind in the whole of Baltic, the cathedral is entrenched in a design philosophy that is quintessentially medieval. Enormous and eclectic, the visage of the cathedral bears a profuse amalgam of various architectural styles including Gothic, Baroque and Romanesque, with fine undertones of Art Nouveau. Having largely framed the cultural and architectural landscape of the country, the cathedral harbors an interior which is the very embodiment of ancient grandeur which lingers over vibrant stained glass windows, gilded chandeliers, an intricately-carved pulpit and an ornate organ, which is one of the largest of its kind in the world. Home to an array of concerts, festivities and cultural events, the cathedral is a communal and architectural landmark par excellence.
