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.

  • Well worth a visit to not only learn about the history of the church but also to go up into the Tower via the lift. The views over Riga are truly breathtaking + well worth the 9 euros .

  • It was a nice experience to take a look at Riga from the tower. Elevator is taking people to the top. There is some exhibition of paintings in the 1st floor. Entrance fee is 9€

  • The inside is not that special, especially when you've seen a lot of churches already. But what makes it impressive is that it's just really really big. And of course, what everyone comes for is the view. Is it worth the 9 Euros? Well if you really like great views, why not.. and hey, you're on a holiday, right? :) The platform upstairs offers room to a lot of people, so it's quite ok to spend some time there. I really liked it.
  • Stunningly elegant church set in the middle of Old Riga. Nice setting and a lovely part of town. Beautiful bell tower and we are just musing whether to pay the €7 fee for the view or not?🧐. Nice interior but not the grandest/historical of churches I’ve seen. Stiff competition in Europe in this category. However we’ll worth a visit.
  • Nice church and tower. Compared to churches in Spain, this one Is sort of boring. Tower has a nice view, but for 9 Euros, I didn’t think it was worth it. The museum part might give a good history, but none of the explanations are in English.
  • I had the most amazing experience, been to riga many times before the first time I went up to the viewpoint and saw riga from a totally stunning new perspective, I will definitely recommend visitors and locals who didn't go up yet to go worth every penny. You can buy 2 types of tickets at the general entrance or with a pass to the elevator to get to the viewpoint. Food and drinks are not allowed inside the church had my water taken away on a very hot day. Anyone who enjoys exploring churches also recommends a great history inside!
  • For €9 you will see pretty much whole town, especially old part of it. It's worth going to the top of this church if you are visiting Riga and love to see the city from the top.
