Few people know that the Olive Organs were built at the turn of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries by Jan Wilhelm Wulff from Orneta. They were the largest organs in the world then. One small button of the organs has a power to breathe life into almost all figures adorning the instrument. An interesting fact is that most of the pipes we hear when the instrument is playing are hidden in a special closet.
These largest organs are a craft art. Figures of angels move their heads, as well as their trumpets are in movement. We can see stars and angels playing on the bells. Oliwa organs are best enjoyed in the afternoon, when the sun's rays passing through a stained glass window and illuminate the carved figures with a riot of colors.
