My Europe Diaries – Visit to Nativity of Christ Cathedral, Riga

Hi All,

This year in May, I visited Europe for the first time and the first country I visited was Latvia. I am truly blessed for visiting this beautiful city “Riga”.

In the series of posts in name of My Europe Diaries, I am going to share some posts and my experiences of Europe.

This post is about the cathedral ” Nativity of Christ Cathedral”. This is the biggest orthodox church of the city. It was officially opened in the year 1884. However in the later years during the soviet era, this church was turned into planetarium, restaurant and finally in the 1990’s the restoration of the church began and finally consecrated by Archbishop Alexander on 6 May 2000.

This cathedral is a true beauty, it is a synonym of majestic architecture. Its a joy watching this cathedral. The interiors of this cathedral are beautiful. And it was a serene experience visiting this cathedral. I did try to capture the pics of the cathedral from outside, however the magic of the place can be felt only when we visit. Don’t forget visiting this place when you visit Riga 🙂

Here are some of the pictures captured by me.

Loads of Love,

Prasanna Rayaprolu
