Like many other Russian Orthodox churches in the city, it is quite colourful. It is pretty both inside and outside, and worth a quick visit.

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.
