Top sigths of Latvia
The Dome Cathedral is one of the main churches in Riga. The building of the cathedral was started in 12111 and lasted till the 18th century. A beautiful tower made in Baroque style is the signature symbol of the cathedral. The height of the tower is 90m. Right in front of the cathedral starts Dome Square that is often chosen as the location of various performances, fairs and other entertaining events. Perhaps, the Cat House is the most unusual place in Riga. There is an interesting legend connected with the building. Long time ago the house belonged to a noble citizen who, however, was not accepted to the guild. To express his protest, the citizen decorated his house with figures of cats and put cats in a particular way so that their backs were facing the guild house. The figurines of cats have remained on the building, but their position was adjusted.
