If you just want to see the church, don't bother. There's nothing special to see inside, just a tall brick building. The main attraction here is the view. Take the elevator to the top and get a great view of the old town and beyond.

If you love medieval architecture you will love this majestic medieval church all around. It is in the middle of Old Town Riga, hard to miss!
