A masterpiece of Riga’s skyline, St. Peter’s Church is slated to be around 800 years old. The best part about St. Peter’s Church is its view from the spire. All of Riga can be seen from the view deck and it’s indeed a sight to be reckoned with. Ever since it’s been built, St. Peter’s Church has had a long history of being demolished and rebuilt- the last time it was restored was in 1941.
Don’t invest a lot of time here because although St. Peter’s Church is an important landmark of Riga, there’s not much to see inside the church as it’s rather sparsely embellished. Remember that while entry to the church is free, the ride to the top of the spire does require a minimal charge.
- Entry is free.
- While entry to the church is free, riding the lift to the top of the tower costs around USD $4.
- Ratslaukums (tram station)
- Nacionala opera (tram station)

The best place I have seen in all my travels around Baltic. It's wonderful every corner you can visit and you can take very nice pictures from the 4 different facades. Is a must if you visit the country. Don't forget it or you'll miss one of the just wonderful building in this city. In Riga it's my favourite place to see it. I take a hostel not far from it. Sire you will love it.
It was incredible nice experience. Climbing upstairs with an elevator is highly recommended. Staff was super kind and helpful
The view up there is just amazing. Cost is 9 euros for adult and totally worth it. Not so much interesting in church itself.
Amazing view above all Riga ! It's a must see if you visit this city. So nice !
Not really worth the money for visiting the tower imho.. The view is great but it is really expensive and there are better and cheaper viewing platforms in Riga
