St. Saviour's Church (Anglikāņu Sv. Pestītāja baznīca) is an Anglican church in Riga, Latvia at Anglikanu iela 2. It is located in the north of the old town centre (Vecrīga), close to Riga Castle and the banks of the Daugava River.The neo-Gothic church was designed by Johann Felsko. The foundation stone was laid in 1857 and the church was dedicated on 26 July 1859. Church use was halted during the Soviet occupation, and in 1973 it became the home of the Riga Polytechnic Institute student club.After Latvia regained its independence in 1991, an English-speaking congregation was again formed. In 1995 the Latvian-born Reverend Dr Juris Calitis became the pastor of a growing congregation. Jāna Jēruma-Grīnberga was installed as priest-in-charge in October 2014, succeeding Cālītis. A day centre for the elderly runs in the undercroft, and the church operates a soup kitchen for homeless people and a centre for abused and neglected children.Historical records are held in London Metropolitan Archives.Sources Website of the Anglican Church in Riga

Where to stay in Riga

As tourism surges in Riga, accommodation options and variety have grown too. The Baltic capital has quality lodging for every budget, from centrally located and affordable hostels, to private apartments and hotel rooms, to chic main-street hotels. The Old Town, a World Heritage Site, sits at the center of it all, so consider staying here if you want to be in the thick of things. For lower prices, look slightly outside of the city's core but within walking distance. For somewhere a little quieter, check out neighborhoods like Agenskalns and Tornakalns, which are less touristy, well-preserved districts.
