A bit pricey at 7 euros, but good city and river views, particularly of the Old Town and church spires. Visit late afternoon to avoid a crowd at the top.

Riga is beautiful & the views from this tower are spectacular. As others have said, the elevator runs every ten minutes, so a fairly quick visit is possible if you are pressed for time. Yes, it is windy & crowded, but well worth it.

I was told to do both and was pretty disappointed to see that the view was pretty much the same considering that the price at the Church is 7€ per person, this is too expensive. So if you plan to have a cocktail and enjoy the view from The Radisson Bar (which I recommend), don't do both, it's not worth... More

It is a fine cathedral. First you walk some stairs. Then a lift with doorman takes you to the top. This is the best view of riga.

You may see whole Riga from that church. Up to the top there is not much space. Very nice view! Ticket costs 7euro..

Great place to view the city and take pictures. One can get a great overview of the old town center. No excessive waiting in line during our visit

The view from the tower is really worth it, Unfortunately the church inside is very empty, no exciting pieces of art to inspire.

You can spend 10-15 minutes there and see nice views of Riga but you can't take proper pictures because of the cage-like bars. It's also quite small up there and gets crowded easily. Also we thought 7 euros per person was quite expensive. Can skip unless you have plenty of time and money :)

From the top of St peters Church you can get a great view of the entire Riga area! It costs 7 Euros to clmb 2 levels and then catch the elevator to the top viewing point! the entry fees also provides access to the Art Nouveau display on level1

E7.50 to go in the church. the lift is every ten minutes to take you to the top but well worth the money and the price - they also accept student cards for a discount
