... not really worth the 9 Euro entry fee. St. Peter's spire is the highlight of the Riga skyline, but the church itself is more interesting outside (and in its historical importance) than inside, which is very plain. You can see the church for 3...More

One of several large churches in old town, this one has an impressive facade and a very high tower. View from the top are supposed to be quite good. There are many shops and restaurants located close by. Entrance to the church itself is by...More

This is an immense, starkly beautiful church. A choir was practicing when I visited - mainly to go up the tower to see the city from above.

We felt like going to the top to see the best views about Riga. The ticket is expensive... 9e per person but it is worth it. There is an elevator that it is said it operates every 10 minutes but the time is less. The...More

Very lovely church, good for aerial pictures of Riga. It’s worth spending some time there. For orientation the tower is also very helpful.

Not worth the 9 euros to go to the observation tower in my opinion. Views good but not worth the money/

When you are in Riga, you definitely must take a lift to the tower of this church and see the town from above! You just have to be patient, there are too many people on weekends.

I wanted to get one of the best views over the town, and this is probably it. A 9 euro ticket gets you up the tower (one set of steps then a lift). Views all round. The interior is vastly high, with intricate ceiling patterns,...More
