Definitely worth paying the money to take pictures of the view. You get a different perspective than that from the Rad Blu.

360 degrees view of Riga, on top of the old town. No windows so easy to make photos. Can see the sea.

The way to the top is mostly done by elevator, so most people can do this. There is a great view over the whole of Riga, and of course best visited on a clear day.

At 9 euros each it's expensive but worth it. We were first travellers up in the lift on a Sunday morning and the views were terrific. We'd already spent half a week in Riga but it was only when we got up in the lift...More

Beautiful church and a great view from the tower. We were lucky and had a really nice and sunny day. It's a bit expensive but worth it, 9€/adult and 7€/student. If you are first time in Riga, I definitely recommend to visit here!

Been to the city numerous times. Visited the church and discovered a tower. Went up here for the first time today. Amazing. It's a lift up to the best views in the city. No leg day required. It's hidden behind the black heads house, make...More

The view is lovely for sure but really overpriced. 9 euro to go into a lift seems a little extreme. You do get to see the entire town though which was nice.

We visited here in late January and it was very cold at the top and due to weather the view was slightly hampered. You can walk around inside the old church. Parts of it have been rebuilt after the War. The price of admission was...More
