“Loved the colours and shapes of the roof lines.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

We did find this a little more crowded, especially in the lift! But the views were fantastic and it enabled you to see the shapes of the buildings from a different angle!

“Don't miss.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

The panoramic view of Riga is stunning. The Daugava river is beautiful and you can almost hear all the old secrets from the viewing point.

“Bird sight view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

You can see the whole of Riga from there, and the pictures will probably be amazing. On the other hand, so would be any pictures of a beautiful city from a high tower.

“okay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

The only good thing about it is the view from the top of the church tower. It is pricey for what it is in my opinion, The lift only comes every 10 minutes so there's always a fight to get on and off the lift. The best idea is to take the viewing in turns if there's a few of you going and one of you being always by the lift to make sure you get on. Downstairs in the church there isn't much to see if you can't read Latvian. Overall is shouldn't be on top of anyone's list but if you have spare time to waste why not.
