This is a landmark in Riga that definitely stands out, mostly because of the color. The building is not that big, but very nice.

Looks beautiful when lit up at night and definately worth a look inside. It is small but wonderfully ornate.

Not being orthodox nor christian at all myself I found this small chruch really exciting! At night is was truly beautifully lit outside compelling to see more. We visited the next day with our 8-9 y. old kids and boy it was pretty. Lots of candles, huge numbers of paintings with silver and gold, icons, atmosphere.. Doesn't cost anything to visit, but you can leave a coin or two to support. There's also a a litlle kiosk where you can buy honeycomb candles or tiny icons for a couple of coins.
