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.

  • We went to the top of the tower and even in the pouring rain the view was amazing! It’s a shame that they charge €9 per person as that’s quite expensive, especially if you have a whole family to pay.....  more »
  • The church is nice enough, but the thing to go for is the view. Ticket costs 9 euro, thus it is the more pricey of Riga's attractions, especially churches, which are typically free, but it's worth it.  more »

  • Really nice view on Riga! I put 4 stars as it costs now 9 eur which I think is really expensive! The church is absolutely beautiful. The lift that goes to the top is really old and slow, was an experience in itself. Probably one of the best view of Riga with the Latvian Science Academy and Skyline Bar.
  • The church was very beautiful from the inside. There's an optional entry fee of 5 euros per person, but for example in my case, a lovely elderly woman (probably over 80 years old) paid my entrance "fee" when she saw I had no cash on me. Lovely place, lovely people
