Pretty church, for sure, but seemed like every other church i've visited throughout Europe. Walk past it and stick your head in the lobby but no need tor any more.

While religious architecture doesn't really interest me that much, St Peter's Church in Riga's old town is worth a visit even just to see the view from the steeple viewing platform. It does cost €9 for an adult but school pupils and students receive a...More

After the House of Blackheads, this church is the Riga's edifice we most liked. It is located in the historic center of Riga and with its spire of belfry, dominates the cityscape. That is also one of the oldest and most valuable monumental architecture edifices...More

Beautiful building and well worth the photos, I couldn't get in on the day and so just wandered around the outside, worth it though.

The church is beautiful and the views from the steeple are wonderful on a clear day. I enjoyed a lovely concert here and the setting and sound quality were perfect.

You get some wonderful views of Riga at the top of the tower and would recommend just for that. The 1960's elevator that you have to go up in to get to the top is hilariously antiquated... Didn't sound/feel in too great a shape but...More

We went to a concert in the evening. The organ was played with a violinist. It was an hour long and enjoyable. It would be even nicer if they had a screen so you could see the people playing. As it is a large organ...More

If you just want to see the church, don't bother. There's nothing special to see inside, just a tall brick building. The main attraction here is the view. Take the elevator to the top and get a great view of the old town and beyond.
