Inside the Riga Dome Cathedral in Old Riga, Latvia
Riga

Riga Cathedral (Latvian: Rīgas Doms) is the Protestant cathedral in Riga, Latvia. Built near the River Daugava in 1211 by Livonian Bishop Albert of Riga, it is considered the largest medieval church in the Baltic states. It has undergone many modifications in the course of its history. David Caspari was rector of the cathedral school in the late 17th century. His son Georg Caspari also served at the cathedral.

It is often known in English as the Riga Dom Cathedral (although it has no dome, the nickname comes from the Latvian Doms and German Dom meaning "cathedral")


Certainly one of the most recognisable landmarks in Latvia, the Cathedral is featured in or the subject of paintings, photographs and television travelogues.

Svētās Marijas jeb Rīgas Doma katedrāles kā Livonijas bīskapijas bīskapa rezidences pamatakmens ir ticis ielikts 1211. gada 25. jūlijā. Svinīgo ceremoniju vadīja bīskaps Alberts. Par nelaimi līdz mūsdienām nav saglabājušās ziņas par Doma būvniecības sākotnējo periodu. Tiek uzskatīts, ka pašreizējā Doma celtniecībā uzsākās straujš attīstības posms 1215. gada pavasarī, kad iekšpilsētā nodega pirmais Doms. Līdzās katedrālei klasiskajā romānikas katedrāļu stilā uzcelts arī bīskapijas Domkapitula klosteris un Rīgas Doma skola.

XV gs. pirmajā pusē katedrāle pārbūvēta: centrālais joms paaugstināts, uzbūvējot rietumu šķērsjomu un sānu kapelas, līdz ar to Sv. Marijas katedrāle tika pārvērsta par baziliku. Tajā pat laikā tika paaugstināts baznīcas tornis, kuram bija astoņstūru piramidāla smaile, kas tajā laikā to darīja par augstāko torni Rīgas pilsētā.

A lively crossroad of cultures and backgrounds for over 800 years, the historical centre of Riga has accumulated an impressive cultural baggage and today is justly included in the UNESCO’s World Heritage list.
