The highlight of visiting St. Peter's Cathedral is to take the elevator up the spire to get a great view of Riga's Old Town. However, given the cramped space (eight people at most) and slow speed a long line can quickly form. Get there early to avoid a long wait and to get the best photos.
The church interior is sadly a shadow of its former self. The massive destruction that occured in 1941 during the German invasion was never properly repaired (probably due to lack of money). It's still worth a visit to one of Riga's most important churches.
