The visit from St. Peter's Church is very good and the church itself is definitely worth a visit, though at 9€ per person not cheap.

St. Peter's church built in the 12th century, has an atypical wooden gothic style tower which gives you a beautiful view of the Daugava river, Riga Bay and port.

The lift up to the platform is slow and there is always a queue; for the cost of the trip, the views are unspectacular, The price of entry helps to keep the church building maintained - probably the best reason for going up the tower!

Great views of the Riga city for 7€ (discounted student price). You can see the three bridges over the Daugava river, the Riga central market and the Riga TV tower. Also, the city looks very vibrant and colorful!

Nice city views, good spot to get some nice photos. Was a bit crowded but not to bad. Lift is a bit costly but I think worth it. A must do in Riga.

The view is quite great to see Riga and the surroundings but 9€ for a small place to see the view with time is kinda too much.
