St. Saviour's Church is an Anglican church in Riga, Latvia at Anglikanu iela 2. It is located in the north of the old town centre (Vecrīga), close to Riga Castle and the banks of the Daugava River.The neo-Gothic church was designed by Johann Felsko. The foundation stone was laid in 1857 and the church was dedicated on 26 July 1859. Church use was halted during the Soviet occupation and in 1973, it became the home of the Riga Polytechnic Institute student club.After Latvia regained its independence in 1991, an English-speaking congregation was again formed. In 1995 the Latvian-born Reverend Dr Juris Calitis became the pastor of a growing congregation. A day centre for the elderly runs in the undercroft, and the church operates a soup kitchen for homeless people and a centre for abused and neglected children.Historical records are held in London Metropolitan Archives.Sources Website of the Anglican Church in Riga

  • Sunshine per person in appearance, looks very heavy is also a flaming red looks like brick. Look around around the more drawn to its beauty. Is not a very large churches, stained-glass Windows was very characteristic. Was the image there are exterior color and many used warm colors such as red, yellow, and orange. Light there has a little sunset impression even in the daytime, and settled on the heart. And because not many people leisurely sitting in the very city.
