Amazing views, especially when the weather is good :) The price is a bit higher for only a lift to the top of the tower, but worth the view from there :)

Quite run down. Need to pay to enter. Nothing spectacular about this building although it has rich history. Having a guide to explain would help.

The entrance is quite a high price but the views are stunning, you get to see many of Riga’s interesting building, especially the National Library and the orthodox cathedral

That is a nice view, but only through metal bars (for safety reasons), there is not much space on the platform and it is usually crowded. You can get beautiful shots of the city panorama from up there.

For only a few euros you get a great view over Riga. A lift gets you to the first lever of the tower.

€ 9,- buys you a ticket for the lift (beware you have to walk up the stairs three levels first) up to the tower platform. The view around is great and you should not miss this. The ticket is also valid for the church.

The view from St. Peter's church were really picturesque. Even if it was a bit cloudy when we went there, but still, I was mesmerized by the astonishing view of the city of Riga. The roofs of the old buildings were a sight to behold....More
