Agree it's a bit overpriced

Nine Euros is quite a lot for this and I'd say it's touch and go whether it's worth it. The price... read more

The view from the top of St Peter's Church is worth a visit. You need to walk up a couple of floors before catching lift to the top. You can see the whole city from the top but the cost is a little expensive.

If you have the 7-9 euros to spare, the tower is worth your time. View is nice, but the platform is pretty small.

One must pay the money and take the elevator to the viewing floor. Riga is a UNESCO Heritage Site and one can see how beautiful the city really comes together with the color, architecture, and the river.

Nice view from the tower above but behind bars...lady is grumpy and not nice in the elevator. Counts 10min exactly for going up the tower. In any case, 9€ per person is a rip off for this activity and one might choose other options. Cherch...More

There's a lift up, costs 9€ /adult. View is spectacular over the river, old town, central market and the rest. The church itself is beautiful and there are usually art exhibitions to see as well.

Despite visiting Riga many times, this was the first opportunity I had to make it to the top. First, note the opening times, as they are not open on a Monday (and some weekend days I believe). It's 9 euros to go to the top,...More
