This church is a little bit outside the centre of Riga, but worth seeing it. Inside the sculptures and the design of the church is remarkable and very impressive!

Gorgeous looking, it's a big orientir if you walk through narrow streets of Old RIga. Stunning interiors and exteriors. Local choir had its rehearsal when I was there before Christmas, lovely acoustic and unique experience.

huge church and was the meeting point for our walking tour. The steeple is quite high and offers great views of the city. There is an entry fee to visit the inside of the church as well as to ride the lift to the top. I actually felt that the views from Radisson Latvija were better

The main cathedral of Riga. An integral part of the landscape CPAP City. You can wander around day and night. On the spire is an observation deck. Highly recommend!

This is a beautiful, imposing church right in Old Town Riga. It was the first thing we saw of significance when we arrived, and it really gives Riga a medieval look mixed in with the art nouveau.

The church is located near the townhall square, so very easy to find. The elevator to the top runs manually, and we had to wait a few minutes. If it's crowded time, I think you should wait more. When we visited there were art works we could enjoy.

Beautiful church with elegant facade. Not crowded. I would suggest a brief stop but it's not the big name of the Dome cathedral

The church is quite beautiful inside. Somewhat medieval looking on the outside. Has a very tall tower you can go up in and get amazing views of Riga.
