Take a tour of St. Peter Church in Riga, Latvia – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.

Latvia's city of Riga is home to some truly beautiful architecture, including the Saint Peter's Church.

A 236 foot-tall, tiered steeple is the most distinctive feature of this city's iconic church.

Dating back at least 800 years, the church's first record was in documents from 1209.

Saint Peter's is a unique blend of three architectural styles: Gothic, Romanesque, and Baroque.

Though the building has had several reconstructions due to damage, it is in top form today.

Beautiful views of Riga crown the top of the steeple, which is reachable by an elevator.
