Before we visited Riga we checked their cultural programme and found that in this church are regular organ concerts. So one day we went there to see the church and visit the concert at the same time. The church is small but has rich history...More

To be fair, the ceiling vaulting is beautiful, but that's all you'll be allowed to see, & access is very limited (c10m of aisle). Everything else is roped off & guarded by an astonishingly rude elderly woman, who prevents you from entering until you have...More
