One of the centrepieces of the Old Town, the Riga Dome Cathedral is not to be missed. Not that that's likely to happen as it's the sort of building you see from afar and feel yourself gravitating towards. Resplendent red brick on the outside, the Dome (or 'Dom') Cathedral is also a beaut from within. Whitewashed walls tower over the faithful, while austere woodwork provides a pleasing contrast. Of course the real cynosure of the Dome is its giant organ. Built between 1883 and 1884 and boasting 124 registers and 6828 pipes, it's a real monster. Regular concerts give it a work out.
