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.

  • Out and its surroundings is imposing its first facade is the large high impressive additional facades are very well kept and maintained. It seems to me that it is a structure interesting architectural. There is a large lobby before entering where offer the service elevator to get to the part above which is worth without a doubt if you have money to pay which is more than $7 below the floor contains several tombstones as it is walking its vaults are more towering forward left side in the middle there is a decoration of wood in the place where the last altar at the back of the Altar several carved rocks are apparent tombstones pictures and other memorabilia ceilings they are decorated in a way of the cross

  • 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 €
