The views from here are beautiful and you can take some really nice pictures, so if your here I think it's worth while going up once to take in the view :)!

The view from St Peter's Church Tower over Riga is indeed quite nice (especially on a sunny day) but you have better try another point of view (Academy of Science?). Indeed, you have to pay 9 euros to go up there, and you can only go up using the elevator (no stairs). For that price, I expected that the man... More

The view from the top of this church tower is awesome.You get a fantastic view of the entire city of Riga encompassing a full 360 degrees range,It makes better sense to visit this tower after taking a tour of the city attractions first, because then it feels wonderful to identify the buildings and churches you have seen already, but are...

We visited in August and the clear weather allowed a fantastic view over the city. The Church has a lift from the third floor, taking visitors up to the highest open point. The price is €7, which is not cheap, but if the weather is good, worth visiting.

The view from nearly 100m above Riga's old town might be nice (though not breathtaking), but it is by far the priciest. Also, the platform is too small for the crowd longing for taking the best photo. All in all an annoying experience.

Enjoyed the view from Saint Peter Tower but you can have a better view (no grid) from the tower of the academy of sciences for only EUR 4 Can not recommend it

So, this is a Tour Eiffel of Riga, highest accesible viewpoint in old Riga. First you have to queue for the tickets. A bit overpriced, I would say, for 9 EUR. Than you have to queue for the elevator ( I wish there were stairs) in an unorganized line of rude Russians mostly. The view is nice but the space... More
