Riga Lutheran Church of Jesus, Latvia
Riga

During its existence the church of Jesus as long as the biggest part of Riga churches, was many times demolished and then restored. The first stone in its foundation was put in 1635; the church was consecrated in 1638.


Today's building of the church of Jesus was built in 1822 according to the project of architect H. F. Breitkreic. Nowadays this is the biggest wooden building in Latvia and one of the biggest wooden churches in Europe. The tow-staged tower of the church is 37 m high.
