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.

  • The Church of San Pedro, is located in the old part of the city. This church is one of the architectural monuments of Riga and most visited tourist, the tower is very high it has 123.5 meters in height, it is Lutheran confession. Its origins date back to the 13th century.

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

  • A beautiful red brick church built in the early 13th century. It costs €3 person to enter the church and if you wish to go up the tower it'll cost €9. There's plenty of history behind this church so a visit is recommended.
  • A historic and architecture marvel, dates back to the year 1209. But as a touristic point I don't recommend it, they overcharge the price to climb the tower (11 euros), and the people is rude.
  • I like the church very much, it looks very beautiful from the outside, also on the inside, there's plenty to see and the tower is also very beautiful. However I think it is a bit overpriced going up to the tower.
  • "Gorgeous Church, Hostile Staff" One of the best architectures in Old Town, but the lady in the ticket office was very unfriendly. We didn't know the church tower was closed due to the wind, the staff told us nothing, when we wanna buy the tickets, simply saying one word "CLOSED!!" in such bad manner, Latvian people are generally friendly, this is an exceptional case. Anyone wanna visit, be prepared.
  • Great views from the top. Plan your visit time according to the position of the sun, because otherwise you will end up with a lot of Shadows on your pictures.
