We were there in December and there was free concert at the church which was brilliant. The architecture of the church is great and we went again next day for the 360 degree views from the top which were splendid.

Looking pictures from 1940s, it is amazing how well people fixed this Church and rebuilt the tower. Entrance to the was EUR7 for adults (2014). After paying you start climbing stairs, which reminded me Cologne Dome and its 533 steps to the top. Luckiy after less than that there was hall with small queue to elevator. It takes 9 +... More

Best view of Riga old town. It is a must visit. I visit in winter and it is especially cold on top.. Prepare more warm clothes if you are coming in winter. The Samsung building from afar spoil the old town scenery. Without that it will be perfect.

It's a nice looking church from the outside, and architecturally quite unique in Riga. The inside is rather plain and nondescript, though it's worth paying 7 euros to go up the tower for the views of the city. Overall, though, underwhelming.

A nice church, with nice art work to look at. Definitely worth a tip up the tower, it was beautiful.

It costs E7 to visit the church and go up the tower, but it's worth it. Cold up the top, mind you, so take gloves! Also enjoyed the display of photos which showed the damage sustained in WWII, and the temporary display of sculpture inside for Riga 2014.

Lovely church, worth a visit in its own right but the view from the top is beautiful. If visiting in the winter time then wear a hat and gloves, it's chilly up there. Worth a visit but E7 is a bit steep (excuse pun) for admission fee

The view from the tower is worth the 7€, but wrap up warm if going in winter!!! The church was not as impressive on the inside as the outside would lead you to believe.

Well-lighted façade. Impressive and a little scary at nights. There must be an entrance fee for the roof of church.

Huge, impressive building. It was seen from our hotel, so every evening i was watching at its lighted tower. What we did not like, that you have to pay for entering this church...
