  St Saviour's Church

St Saviour?s Church is an Anglican church built of red-brick in Gothic style. It was constructed between 1857 - 1859 for British traders and sails men. The building material was brought from Britain and so was the soil the church is built on.
During the Soviet occupation the church was used as a disco for students of Riga?s Technical University. Now it is again a property of the Church of England and services are held here on Sundays in English.

Directions: Situated in Old Town, near the castle and overlooking river Daugava.
