It looks like a leap of faith to gain access to the viewing platform......you will see what I mean when you get into the lift......but its worth it as the view is great.

This would be an amazing place to be in good weather! In the wind it was also beautiful but it was so cold that we had to take a few pictures, walk around a few times and then take the elevator back down. Still I recommend doing it because the photos you get are absolutely amazing and some of my... More

Beautiful church, quite nice view from top, although the price is not so small (7 eur/person). Also safety bars makes it difficult to take beautiful photos :)

This a nice view of Rīga, you can see far over the old town and see the market hals and market place from above. The church is to vissit too but you need a other ticket. It can be windy so high up, so bether take a good jacket after summer.

Definitely worth a visit! It gives you a fantastic view of the old town - a lot better than the sky bar situated in the Radisson Blu hotel.

it a good view but I think a little pricey for what it is - if its a cold day you will freeze up there. If your not likely to visit Riga again then i would go up

I'm sure the view from the top is lovely but at Euro 7 per adult it is overpriced and I decided to give it a miss.

Loved the view... although there is not much space at the top so I imagine lines could be long during the peak season. Metal bars all around help prevent perfect pictures with high end cameras - but point and shoots or cell phones fit thru just fine. Was pricier than I thought it was worth - but it was a... More

The shame of this place is that it was destroyed in WWII and its restoration, although competent and not complete yet, has been less than entirely sympathetic to the original. Just another reminder that war is not a great way of refurbishing 400 year old churches. The view was excellent and the fee contributes to the eventual further refurbishment of... More
