Dome Cathedral was founded by Bishop Albert - the founder of the city, here he was buried. It is said that its spirit is guarded by the cathedral, the largest medieval church in the Baltic countries. Nevertheless, the spirit of Albert did not save the cathedral from almost complete destruction during the fire in 1547. Albert could not take part in the opening ceremony of his brainchild - the construction of the cathedral was delayed for more than sixty years. Restoration of the cathedral after the fire required large funds and it was decided to erect one in the center instead of two towers on the facade. One of the famous sights of the cathedral is its organ, built in the second half of the 19th century. Its height is 25 meters and it has almost 7,000 pipes. It was for this body that Franz Liszt wrote several works. The weathervane of the cathedral is the famous one and a half meter golden cockerel. Free admission. Probably the most impressive thing is to listen to the sound of the organ of the Dome Cathedral. Translated with Google Translate
