If you enjoy experiencing a beautiful church, this one is for you. And dare to take the elevator to the top of the tower...lovely view.

“Art Display”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

A nice medium sized church. there is an entrance fee which includes a trip to the top of the tower. A little unfair, I feel in case you don't want to go up. However, there was also a display of work from the Riga artist's union, which was lovely to see.

“wrong image”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

This is not actually a review, but a correction. The photo of the church that you show for "St. Peter's Church" is not that church.

It is a photo of the Orthodox Cathedral on Brivibas Street (main church rfor the Russian community in Riga)

“Reconstructed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

They have done a nice job on the reconstruction. The Shot tower has pictures showing it buring in WWII. A lot of the historical artifacts were either destroyed or taken, but the structure is nice to view.
