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.

St. Peter's Church, Riga Reviews - Write a Review
St. Peter's Church (Latvian: Svētā Pētera Evaņģēliski luteriskā baznīca) is a Lutheran church in Riga, the capital of Latvia, dedicated to Saint Peter. It is a parish church of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Latvia.
Make sure to go up in a not so rainy day. I think it is a bit overprice as you can have a similar view of the city from the Skyline bar and with the same price you get the beer and the view.
To expensive for what you get.feel like monkey in the cage.can't see what is close to tower just in the distance. Lift is a benefit for the weak links.people go traveling!!!
There are great views from the bell tower of tge church. There is an elevator that will bring you to the top, but there is a fee (be prepared to open your wallet).
This church was built 500 years ago. The Reformation also started 500 years ago. To think that this church is as old as the Reformation helps put the historical perspective into better view. This church also has the tallest steeple in Riga. With taking a look. If you are adventuresome, for a fee, you can climb up into the steeple for a spectacular view of the city.
