4.1/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web
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 view at the top was very nice, but the actual Church room lacked atmosphere. It was very sad that they had created an art exhibition in the Church room, I think.

  • Looks good, but the 3€ entrance and 9€ lift ticket is not worth it. It's probably the biggest church in Riga. So if you want to see good looking churches and towers, go to the neighboring Vilnius. There, the entrance is free and you just donate whatever amount you like.
  • beautiful view, but expensive tickets and horrible communism concrete construction.
  • Great views of the Riga city for 7€ (discounted student price). You can see the three bridges over the Daugava river, the Riga central market and the Riga TV tower. Also, the city looks very vibrant and colorful. You may also read a bit of church's history.
  • Big. Wish I could've went to the top but it is closed on Mondays. The price is high I guess
  • Price was €9 pp when we visited in June 2016. Seems a little high, but the views were great from the top.
