View of Riga from St Peter's Church Tower, Riga

4.0
Get a 360-degree View of Riga from St Peter's Church Tower. Take the elevator to reach the 72 m (236 ft) high observation platform, then look down to see the diverse architecture, the remains of ancient city walls, the markets, and the squares of the town. Ancient chronicles from 1209 first mention the wooden tower, which, at the time, was the highest in Europe. You can watch a film about the church's restoration of the spire while waiting for the elevator. Notice the rooster on the spire--a precise replica of the previous one and the seventh rooster in all. Bring a jacket; it can be windy at the top. Plan to see View of Riga from St Peter's Church Tower and other attractions that appeal to you using our Riga road trip planning app .
