"St. John's Cathedral" St Johns Church Tip by antistar
St Johns Church, Riga: 19 reviews and 39 photos
Heading the popular and touristy street of Skarnu iela is the pretty little church of St. John's. It's dwarfed by its neighbour, St. Peter's, but forms part of a pleasant little street packed with many of Riga's best restaurants. There's a whole lot of history here.
The church was formed in the 13th century as part of the Catholic Dominican order, but now belongs to the Protestant Lutherans. The evidence of its Catholic past can be seen in the etched face of a monk high on the church wall, and the convent garden tucked around the back.
Address: Skarnu Street 24
Directions: At the back of St. Peter's church.
