The view is really good; but you have to pay 11 EUR per Person which is way too much for what you get. Afterwards we found out that you can have an equal view from other buildings like hotels for free or at least less.

Recommend to go to St. Peters church to enjoy the panoramic view of this city. I am fan of Riga, so this is something I would recommend to my Norwegian friends. Please, check the schedule before you go and choose a not rainy day.

A beautiful building with fabulous views but a little pricey at 11euro, without going up to the viewing point, the museum on the ground floor is 5euro. However the views are great from here.

offers a great view from the highest viewpoint in the middle of old town. given how riga is flat as a pancake, on a clear day you can see really far :D. I believe the price is 5eur, which I think is slightly pricey though,...More
