Rigas Doms is a wonderful church, which design is an intricate mix of romance, gothic, Renaissance, baroque and classics. The church is the embodiment of the Old Town, of its diversity and uniqueness. The cathedral is equipped with one of the largest organs in the world. Many years ago Franz Liszt himself composed music specifically for this organ.
The architectural ensemble named Three Brothers , created in the XV, XVII and XVIII centuries, consists of three houses. These are the oldest stone buildings in Riga. The ensemble gives an idea of how people used to live in one of trading and artisan quarters of Riga. After a major restoration that was made in the 50s of the previous century the houses have been turned into architectural museums.
