St. Peter's Church represents one of the oldest and most valuable monuments of medieval architecture in the Baltic states. This Lutheran church, part of the Old Town's historic center, is listed as a World Heritage Site. Nazi Germans bombed the church during World War II, and the Soviets completed the destruction after the war. It wasn't rebuilt until 1983. The church hall houses exhibits and concerts, and the observation deck at the top of the tower offers a view of the entire city.

Incredible acoustics, a building that has already outlasted us all by hundreds of years, and it's still right here, in use today in exactly the same way, where it has been since before other countries even existed! Few places declare permanence like this.
It's worth seeing but make sure you dress appropriately.
