Description
St.Mary's Cathedral was built as a bishop's cathedral. This historical monument became a symbol of the Old town of Riga. For the past centuries it was rebuilt many times, so its present image contains elements of different architectural styles. The basement of the new cathedral and monastery was laid by bishop Albert in 1211. The first construction period was finished by 1270. once the Dome Cathedral spire, erected in 1547, was the highest spire in the city. It was 140 metres high. After reconstruction in 1776 the tower acquired its present look and height of 90 m. Famous organ of the Dome Cathedral was made in 1884. At that time it was the biggest organ in the world, it has 6718 pipes.
