Why locals love it

Interesting experience for non Orthodox visitors. This is one of the largest and most decorated religious structures in Riga and for sure is a must see for believers and non believers alike. The Golden dome is a new addition showing a sign of the times.

Why you should visit it

The Cathedral was erected in the 1860s. It was converted from a church to a planetarium, cinema and cafeteria during the Soviet time. It’s since been renovated and stands upright in gold, always open for worshipers and visitors alike.

Special tip

Do not take photos, God has big body guards at this Cathedral.
