The inside is not as interesting as some of the other churches in Riga. It is rather plain inside and relies on its exhibitions for interest. Yet another place to go up he tower for views of Riga

Whenever I travel to Riga, I make sure to go up St. Peter's Churches' tower. The views from the top are amazing!

Fabulous Lutheran church, plain brickwork, varied glazing and ornate vaulting. Descriptive, illustrated panels describing history of the church. Steps to the elevator [ 9 visitors ] to the viewing platform. Breathtaking views. Not to be missed!

It is nice from the outside. However, the inside was just another church. No statues or windows. They have an painting exhibition going and that's it. They charge 9 euro for the elevator trip to the observation deck, which is too much. I thought the deck will be big, sadly it is very small. Walk 15 paces and you would... More

This is a beautiful old church and surprise surprise, it's not Catholic although it does appear to be so from both the inside and outside. It's Lutheran. But then it was built in a similar time to a lot of the European Catholic churches so the design is similar. This church is in the middle of the old town and... More

I've paid 4 euro to go up the Latvian Academy of Sciences for a great view of the city of Riga, not paying another 9 euro to do something similar!

Well, yes, it is nice from the outside. Inside it is just another church. No nice windows or statues. It has only been rebuilt in the 1990s. They now charge 9 € for the tower. Far too much. For 9 € you can easily get lunch for 2! I recommend to skip this and go to the radisson skyline bar... More

Unless you plan to pay the extra fee to take the elevator up to the tower, it isn't worth your time. There are other beautiful churches in Riga that are more worth your while. The church does on occasion have art shows and you might be there on a day when the show (included in the price of the tower... More
