The view was nice but considering you can go to the skyline bar or the science building platform and get a similar view for cheaper, I wouldn't pay ten pounds for it. You have to go up in a claustrophobic lift and the viewing platform itself is small and crowded. As for the church, it was more impressive from the... More

9 Euro to climb a church, I personally think that's good value considering the church benefits from the money. And there's no disputing the view. Probably worthwhile doing it fairly early in your visit as a way to get your bearings. There's another viewing tower at the Latvian Academy of Science but St. Peters is open all year round, the...

Nice views, but I think 9 eur is a bit too much for the experience. Stalin's bday cake (building) is cheaper and offers similar views.

The view from up there was amazing. However, the price you have to pay to get up there, not so much. Too expensive!

After climbing to second floor, take the elevator to the observation deck. Great view of the city from within the old town.

This experience cost money , but it was worth every penny. We were advised by Latvian friends to climb the tower and they were so proud of the restoration work. The views are astounding, and the exhibition of photographs shows clearly the scale of determination and investment - look out for the picture of the mayor sitting on the cockerel... More

We were keen to go up but were very disappointed to learn at the entrance that the ticket price has gone from €3 to €9 within the past year. Our brand new guide books still had the old prize so this terrible raise must have happened only a short time ago. Who has done that business case and what does... More

Highest vantage point in all of Riga. You pay a small fee to take an elevator to an observations platform near the top of the tower. It gives you a chance to see not only the Old City but all of Riga, stretching out to the horizon. Until you have a high vantage point, you do not realize how immense... More
