“fantastic views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

This is definitely the place to go when you visit Riga. There is a superb view of the city and surrounds from the top of the tower. It has a small space but well worth the effort of getting to the top. Make this a MUST DO in Riga.

“View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

We went up this on a beautiful day and the views from the top are outstanding. The viewing platform itself is quite small and the lift is claustrophobic but well worth putting up with it for the view of Riga. Something to see in all directions.

“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.
