A big church in the middle of Old town

I consider this church as the biggest church in Old city Riga. Constructed in 1209 and historically rich due to its association with Gothic & Romanesque building style.

The "art space" all around the edges detracted from this and visitors were steered around there rather than the Church itself. The bright lighting in the exhibition area meant that it was difficult to see the detailed architecture of the building itself. The aisle was blocked off with chairs at both ends to stop visitors walking in the area. Its... More

St Peter's Church is an imposing red brick church, first built from timber in 1209, then rebuilt in stone. A lift inside the steeple takes you to two panorama platforms offering an amazing view!

The Church itself is lovely, we walked around inside and took in the lovely architecture. We took the elevator up to the top and were blown away by the lovely view of Old Town, as well as the surrounding areas, and it was amazing! This is well worth the admission, and I look forward to bringing my friends there when... More

St Peter's is a grand church is Riga, known for the amazing view of the city that you can see from the top. The Church its self is lovely to sit in. When we went to visit, there was meditation music playing and candles lit. It made all the difference to the atmosphere in such big building. The view is... More

St Peters Church is the tallest monument building in old Riga and well worth a visit. Picturesque. Interesting architecture.

Most iconic building in the city. Its possible to get up the tower to see Riga from up above 360°. The elevators are pretty expensive though (15 € per an adult). Very beautifu, but crovded and cold up there. Be ready to stand in line for the elevator. It only tajes 10 persons at a time.

The church was nice with old decorations. We buy ticket with tower visit and it was worth it. From tower there was awesome views to Riga and I liked it so much. Highly recommended place.
