The tower offers a breathtaking view of the city. You can see Old Riga, Daugava- the biggest river of Latvia, even suburbs of Riga.

No need to go to Skyline bar at Radisson blu, you can see it all from here. Small elevator but worth the ride. And fun to watch the movie from old days when the tower was built.

There is a good view over Riga but it's not nice place in windy weather. Lot of people in this very small tower waiting for the lift to get down again.

You have a really great view of the city and its surroundings, but the price of 9€ is a little high. After climbing up a few stairs, the elevator slowly takes you to the Top. You can stay as long as you want. It is narrow upstairs and can be crowded if there are many people. Only go up on... More

It was a long wait till we finally boarded the old, slow and small elevator. Operated by an elderly lady solving her sudoku... The view is stunning. But lots of people on the platform. Visitors should check out what time there are fewer visitors.

Worth to go up and to see Riga's panorama, just be prepared with warmer closes even during summer - as it's very windy on top of church. Price of 9 euro is wayyyy too much, especially if you want to go up with family....

It was 9 Euros to take the elevator up the tower to the viewing platform. I think this is way overpriced but glad I did it anyway. I would have rather climbed up the tower but the elevator was the only option. The view over Riga is magnificent and it is a good way to get oriented to the town!

Nine euros per adult is definitely way too expensive for an elevator ride in a church! However, the views were very good at the top. The inside of the church is fairly plain. There was a nice painting exhibit in it when we visited and some centuries-old carved stone.

From the top you will get the best views of Riga. You have to pay almost 10 euros and there is an elevator inside. Be sure to go in a sunny day!
