Its a fantastic 360 degree view of the city costing 7 euros each. Have to walk up four flights of stairs to get to the small lift. Church itself is a bit disappointing.

Great view of the most beautiful city in the world! Just a few seconds and you are at the top of the turret.

The view from the top is very nice. You have to climb 2 stairs and then you have to take the elevator. It's pretty expensive: adults pay €7, but for students it's €5 (bring your college card)! Also very cold on top when it's windy.

The elevator takes you to the observation post. I loved the view. The exposition was not so exciting and to be honest, compared to other churches, the St Peter was not so special from the inside, just go for the view!

Riga has some lovely buildings and St Peter's Tower is a great way to see the city! €7 per person is slightly on the expensive side, but it was nice to see the city from a different angle.

The view from St Peter's church tower is simply stunning. it was quite cold and windy when we visited, but we didn't mind. There was also a small display on the ground floor about the city of Riga, which was quite interesting.

Enjoyable visit and nice views over the Old City but of the three views I preferred the Science Academy and TV Tornis which were both less than half the fee for the church tower.

The good: the views, the expositions. The bad: the waiting and the small corridor on top of the tower. The ugly: the price: 7€ for taking the lift

There is a wonderful view to whole city! Even though it is usually very cold, it is worthy to take good pictures of Riga.
