Overview of Holy Trinity Cathedral Liepaja

The interior of the Holy Trinity Cathedral Liepaja, Latvia

The foundation stone of the cathedral was laid in 1742, and in 1758 the church was consecrated. The construction of the temple was fully completed only in 1866, when two more floors were added in accordance with the main project. The architecture of the cathedral is designed in the late Baroque style with elements of classicism. A luxurious box has been preserved in the church, which was intended for the dukes of Courland.
