I didn't get to see the inside of this church, since it was closed when I visited, but it's a beautiful building, set in a traffic circle. The brick Gothic architecture of the church is set off dramatically by the art nouveau buildings that surround...More

Not so near the city center, but yet worth the walk. Beautiful, amazing building, tucked in the small street. Building next to it has glass facade, so it is really nice for taking photos :)

The pilars look like curtains. The church itself is sober but has coulouful windows. Not special, but worth a visit if you are. nearby.

St Gertrude Old Church is situated at Gertrudes iela 8. Worth going to see if you are in the area. Lovely architecture.

St. Gertrude is one of the oldest churches of Riga. It is a beautiful note monument with Elegant architecture*

Nice cathedral, good architecture, worth the time if you find yourself nearby. It was pretty quiet and relatively empty, which I didn't mind at all. I've seen my share of cathedrals, so I'd just say this is about average. Recommended.
