Lielā Ģilde


by Smig

"One of Riga's Most Interesting Buildings"

Entrenched in a long-standing musical legacy, the iconic Great Guild dates to as far back as the early 14th Century, when it was founded in 1354 as a union of German merchants. Having been reconstructed and remodeled several times ever since, the Guild has deftly established itself as an integral entity which has carved out the cultural landscape of the country. Regarded as one of the oldest of its kind in the whole of the Baltics, Great Guild officially houses the Latvian National Symphony Orchestra and has been the very ground of some of the most legendary events to have ever gone down in the history of the country. Bearing a largely Eclectic facade with undertones of English Gothic splendor, the build has an interior which bears beautiful wood artistry, luminous stained glass windows and exquisite chandeliers, which together redefine opulence. Enclosed within the building are various spaces like the Auditorium, the Fireside Chamber, the White Hall and Minister Hall, all of which retain their ancient glory, but are tailored with cutting-edge acoustics and other sound and light equipment to keep up with the contemporary times. Hosting a repertoire of shows including film screenings, concerts and symphonies (among others), the magnificent Great Guild is, indubitably, one of the crowned landmarks of Riga.
