Religious Site Tourist Spot
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

  • This Anglican church is located on the north of Riga old town and it is close to Riga castle and Daugava River banks.  more »
  • Small Neo-Gothic church built in 1857 situated close to the river. Anglikanu iela 2a. Not worth a special visit.  more »
  • This is a pretty church, but it appears to have some shrubbery growing from its roof! It is located right by the river, and it's very picturesque. We recommend it.  more »
