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 are two women who just wanted to see the church room not go up in the tower. We were quite dismayed to find out we had to pay to go inside the church. We looked from the back, through the glass...  more »
  • 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 »

  • This was a quite a nice church. Unfortunately I’ve rated it lower (though I could have been a 3/5) because it’s a shame how it’s used more as an exhibition hall rather than a prayer space. I don’t know how often the services and mass are but it seems the ticket office is a permanent thing and makes us think that maybe those looking to just go in and pray have to go through the system to do so. On the plus side, we got quite lucky as we had a lovely snowfall when we visited the tower - cold but pretty like we were part of a snow globe. It was €9/10 per person which is bit dear, but views were good. Make sure you have your winter gear if you go up if it’s a winter-blizzardy/snowy day! 🥶
  • Must see and must visit place in Riga. Ticket costs just 9 Euro and you can get to the very top of the Church where you can see the whole city. Beautiful view. Do not forget to take warm clothes as there is a very strong wind up there.
