St. Peter's Church, Riga

4.1
St. Peter's Church represents one of the oldest and most valuable monuments of medieval architecture in the Baltic states. This Lutheran church, part of the Old Town's historic center, is listed as a World Heritage Site. Nazi Germans bombed the church during World War II, and the Soviets completed the destruction after the war. It wasn't rebuilt until 1983. The church hall houses exhibits and concerts, and the observation deck at the top of the tower offers a view of the entire city.

  • The outside of the building. A great landmark, visible from anywhere. Near the statue of the Bremen town musicians (good luck should you rub). Inside is nothing special. Several coats of arms. Backlight made interesting. From the tower you can see the entire old city, but without the Spire of St. Peter of course a bit wrong. Look better with the Academy of Sciences. The price for admission is 9 euros. For adjustment to Academy of science you can climb for 4-5 euros.

  • Unfortunately the Church was closed (Monday) when we wanted to visit but from outside it is already worth to go there.

  • Beautiful church and a testament to what can be built with clay brick. Thank goodness for steel as careful reinforcement is what is keeping it standing. Pay to go to the top of the steeple, it is a fantastic view of the city and they have an elevator so no excuses.
  • Beautiful church but you need to get tickets to to go in. Also it's an active church so can be uncomfortable to look inside when there are people actually praying and service in progress. From outside it looks very tall. If you are in Riga most likely you will come across this so you can check it out.
  • Nice churh. Amazing history. So many times was burning.
  • Its one of the important tourist points in Riga. It sits inside the old city and has a viewing platform *also has a big price tag for entry
  • Magnificent churche! Looks awesome from outside. But have very slow lift and costs 9 €
