The Dome Cathedral is the most important monument in Latvia. It was built in the 13th C, but
underwent several modifications resulting in its current appearance. The Romanesque Altar is the
oldest part. The Gothic and Baroque styles have also influenced this building. In the second part
of the 19th C, the architect J. Felsko built the pseudo-gothic Western Entrance and the
stained-glass panels were placed. Its interior has medieval decorations, tombstones, paintings,
pulpit, and other remarkable features. Further, this church offers organ concerts, where the star
is a magnificent organ dating from 1884.
The Dome serves as seat of the Archbishop of the Latvian Evangelical Lutheran Church.
