A definate must visit if you fancy the rooftop views and a historic excursion while you're climbing up the church steeple. One of the largest mechanical organs in the world, very well preserved and views to remember.

in summer you can get to the tower and see the city from upside down. Inside i don`t see anything special, the organs are one of the biggest in Europe.

The Holy Trinity Cathedral is one of the main symbols of Liepāja. Built by a (Lutheran) German congregation in the 18th Century, its is built in Baroque style, and still has German services every Sunday. The organ in this church has an interesting story, and is the biggest (in terms of numbers of pipes) mechanical organ in the world. It also has the largest altar-piece in Latvia. Definitely worth climbing the tower to get an idea of the local city/landscape. All in all, a monument to the Baltic Germans and their opulence (unusual as a Lutheran church in this respect). Sadly, the exterior is decaying, but it doesn't reflect the interior beauty of this church

The Holy Trinity Cathedral houses the world's oldest and I believe largest mechanical pipe organ. It's very impressive and if you have the opportunity to hear it played - it's a must!
