The oldest part of the cathedral is the altar build in the manner of Romanesque. Gothic style has left its traces in the architecture of Basilica; baroque is the style of the 18th century spire. Western entrance was built in the second part of the 19th century, and has the features of pseudo-gothic style. The first construction period was finished by 1270. After the last reconstruction that took place in 1776, the tower was raised to the height of 90 meters.
One of the highlights of the cathedral is the famous organ that was made in 1884 by a German company "E.F. Walker & Co". At that time it was the biggest organ in the world. The organ has 6 718 pipes and is with wooden carvings from 17-18th centuries. This well-known historical monument became a symbol of the Old Town of Riga...wow..

Grand Canyon National Park Arizona
The Grand Canyon was formed by 5-6 million years of erosion as the Colorado River craved its way through multiple layers of rock. The Grand Canyon is approximately 277 miles long. Its deepest point from the rim to the river is 6000 feet. It was designated a National Park in 1919 and receives nearly 5 million visitors a year.
Thanks to Roger :)
