Panoramas at a price

The views from the top of St Peters Church Tower were worth the inflated price - you have a complete panoramic view of the city - recommended.

The view from St Peters Church is very nice on a good sunny day. You can see the old town of Riga and even further away.

The elevator ride up cost 9 eur per adult which is rather a lot. However, the view was really great. You could see the whole old town and more from up there. The elevator was old and the ride took some time but it did the job.

The view from the top of St Peter's Church Tower is very impressive. It is easy to see the whole 360 degrees. However, the cost is ridiculous for what it is. If I hadn't been obsessed with views from the top of towers, I would have balked at the price ... as I saw quite a number do.

Entrance fee is 9 euro's. So a bit high, I think. Take some stairs and the elevator. On top it's rather cold (May..) and windy. Nice views on the city and river. Full elevator results in full tower above.

7 Euros for an elevator trip!! The views were good but I prefer taking the stairs. The rest of the church is nice but nothing fancy. But it's close to the center and you can see 360 degrees all around.

Nice views of the city and surrounding area. Very bouncy lift! Cost 9€ to get to the top. Very cramped at the top if more than 10 people up there.

The view from St. Peter's Church is breathtaking and absolutely worth paying the entry fee (7€ adults, 5€ students). Even though the weather wasn't great when we were there it was still fantastic to see all of the city from above. I definitely recommend!
