This church is surrounded by trees (conifers and leaved trees) on top of a small hill. It is luminous and it has beautiful carvings on the lofts (balconies).

It is a grand and stylish pseudo-gothic brick church (architects Viktor Johann Gottlieb Schröter, Georg Hellat). In the church, you can admire Johann Köler's altar painting 'Inviting Christ' (1897) and also enjoy concerts in the hall that has room for up to 3000 people.

This church is well worth visiting when you have leisure time in Tartu.

Between 2013 and 2014, the copper sheaths of the spires was replaced (courtesy of a wealthy member of the congregation's legacy). For a brief few months until the copper tarnished, St Peter's roof blazed in the sunlight.
