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)

It's really nice place - church itself and around. I can' t say more then tourist guide says about history and everything concern the church. Well, you will see Bremen musicians statue over there and more interesting around.
It was a good idea to take the elevator up in the tower of St Peters Church. However, bear in mind it is a very small platform up there and I guess you are done in about 4-5 minutes. Then the church is also lovely and had an Art Expedition when we were there.
Stunning 360 degree view of the city. Highly recommended.
Fantastic view from the tower but very windy! A must do when visiting Riga.
A BEAUTY 360° 'ROUND. A Gothic Church... where Spiritualism IS literally in the AIR.
