“Big and impressing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Definitely worthwile to have a look at the inside. You may have to pay if you wish to proceed to walk all around inside, but at the entrance area inside you may have a look which is much to recommend, especially as everything within the old town is close together.

“Beautiful church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

A beautiful church right in the middle of the city. Particular interesting if you want to learn and understand about the architecture of the Baltics.
You can either choose to have a quick look in or take a big tour including the tower. For the latter you are charged 5 LVL. On good day you such catch a magnificent view from there.

“Walkaround the Church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

The church interior was small and simple. The garden area/square was being repaired and full of artefacts and statues.

“Only OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Well, after reading so many "5 balls" reviews I confess I was expecting for better...
I will not comment the restaurs and the decapitated sculpture in the main door as I have conscience that Latvia has economical limits.
I simply think that its very bad for the church to ask money for me to enter in "the house of god", selling souvenirs inside... 5 € to climb the tower...
The locals enter from the side doors, those are for free!
