The Dome still is one of the biggest churches in the Baltics, and is certainly not the prettiest, inside or out, but it is the Latvian Archbishop’s cathedral. The Riga Dome was the Livonian Order’s central cathedral until the disintegration of the Order in 1561....More

Domsky Cathedral is Riga's main church, but it has a very bad times. Entrance is expensively paid, but you have nothing to see, there is refurbishment, organ is disassembled, so it is nothing to do there now. Don't waste you time and money.
