St. Peter's Church - Review

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

  • Beautiful church and a testament to what can be built with clay brick. Thank goodness for steel as careful reinforcement is what is keeping it standing. Pay to go to the top of the steeple, it is a fantastic view of the city and they have an elevator so no excuses.

  • Nice churh. Amazing history. So many times was burning.

  • Its one of the important tourist points in Riga. It sits inside the old city and has a viewing platform *also has a big price tag for entry

  • Magnificent churche! Looks awesome from outside. But have very slow lift and costs 9 €

  • A beautiful red brick church built in the early 13th century. It costs €3 person to enter the church and if you wish to go up the tower it'll cost €9. There's plenty of history behind this church so a visit is recommended.
