This beautiful Russian Byzantine Orthodox church, built in 1876, is especially picturesque. It is perfectly positioned on the corner of the beautiful ‘Esplanade Park’.

My favourite religious building in Riga is without a doubt the Nativity of Christ Cathedral, located just past Bastion Hill and the Monument of Freedom. This Byzantine style building is the largest Orthodox Church in the city, with pretty domes and towers that wouldn’t look out of place in Saint Petersburg. The cathedral was interestingly used as a planetarium and restaurant during the Soviet-era, before being restored in the 1990’s.

Russian Orthodox Cathedral is one of the most beautiful churches that we have ever seen. It is huge, impressive and monumental. We loved it both from the inside and from the outside. It is located a little bit out of an Old Town (about 5 minutes from Freedom Monument) but it is worth a short walk.
