This massive building cannot be missed while passing by in the area. The interiour is light and bright coloured and somewhat missing the serene feeling you often find in old Orthodox churches.

The first time we came this was a planetarium, it is now a beautifully restored orthodox church. The domes are stunning and have been beautifully restored like the interior

Pretty building hiding between the trees next to a park and close to all the clubs and bars, worth seeing.

The Russian Orthodox Cathedral shines in gold both on the outside and inside. If you pass it (near the Freedom Monument and Radisson hotel) go inside. Extremely well maintained and restored. No photography allowed inside.

This is a stunning building. It is beautiful outside and inside too. It is free to enter but you cannot take photos inside.

A superb gem in Riga's crown & free too. Beautiful, ornate, just wow!! Love the tiling on this unusual church & fabulous gold domes that glistened in the sun so wonderfully. Inside is beautiful as well, very ornate & beautifully restored but no photos allowed....More

This visit will be interesting for any tourist. Especially if you believe and it does not matter which religion, in which God.

The Russian Orthodox Cathedral is a sight to behold. I was fortunate to look down at its gilded domes from my hotel room. It was stunning especially when the sun started to rise. When you go inside (no photography) the icons are superb.

What a shame that no photos are allowed! A beautiful cathedral inside and out although the golden domes could do with regilding outside. Well worth a visit. Buy a candle and sit a while.
