The elevator (with a book reading service person) takes you to the top where you have 360 degrees view of the old town, the districts beyond, the river and the harbour.

The church has an elevator that climb visitors to the observation desk. The view of Riga from the tower is very beautiful. I often come across photos taken here, posted in worldwide known travel publics. You can take such a great photo too from here!

Do not miss the opportunity to see Riga from the tower if St. Pete's Church. You will get unforgettable experience for 9€! Really worth it!

Gotta say this the best place to take pictures of the whole city. You have a 360 degree view of the whole city. There is a small museum on the ground floor.

lovely old cathedral with fantastic view of the city. 9 Euros for the trip up the spire but it was worth it.
