The view from the top of St. Peter’s Church is, I believe, the best of the whole city of Riga. Great view of all the other churches in old town and the big bridge and connects to Kipsala. Made for some fantastic photos and was...More

The views are of the entire city of Riga and if done near the end of your trip, it’s fun working out where you’ve been and recognising so much from that height. The church itself and especially access to the viewing tower is a bit...More

Went up to the top of st Peters church and the views are spectacular however the small lift to take people up and the restricted viewing area makes it a little uncomfortable but it is worthwhile just expect a wait to get up.

This was one of the highlights of our walking tour of Riga. The wonderful 360 degree views of Riga more than make up for the slightly nervous laughter among your elevator mates during the ride to the observation platform.

Tickets to enter the church are €9 for adults, so not cheap. However the church is rather beautiful and is very historic and you are able to climb (or go up the elevator) to the tower. Great views when up the tower although it's rather...More

It’s a good idea to go early. Opens at 10am and lift gets busy soon after. €9 in the lift but worth it

Unlike most skyline views you don't have to climb many stairs as there's a lift. Best place to get a picture of St John's.
