Great view of the old town and wider city setting

We decided to take the lift up to the tower to get a birds eye view of Riga - and you certainly get just that. The viewing platform is an ideal place to enjoy a 360 degree view... read more

An impressive exterior but a costly interior. Entrance fee for me was 9€. Upon entry into the sanctuary, take a right-turn and another right to come to a staircase leading to the second story. There, a shakey lift (with an operator inside) would take you to the very top of the spire where you would be greeted with a breath-taking... More

Super impressive church to walk past and marvel at. However, you need to pay to get in and go into the main area of the church and up the tower. At nine euros per person, it is pretty damn expensive. Maybe good to walk past and that is all. Also a warning: prices seem to change daily. One person we... More

We decided to take the lift up to the tower to get a birds eye view of Riga - and you certainly get just that. The viewing platform is an ideal place to enjoy a 360 degree view right around the city. It is pricey to get up here but you are only likely to do it once so just... More

You have to pay to get inside. The Main entrance wall looks cool and proud but not anything astonishing. Pretty plain.

9 euros to have a look from the tower, which is great, really worth it and some exhibition on the 1st floor + some old things like tombs, etc all around. Not so good, but maybe interesting too.

The church is only 3 euros to enter and is quite plain (although there was a good exhibition on architecture there when we went). The tower is an extra 6 euros each, but is worth it. The lift is small and slow, but the views over the city are excellent.

Best part of Riga. For about 9 euros you can explore this amazing church inside and out. Take the elevator to the top and see amazing 360 views. Wish I could see this both during the day and night. Highly rscommended. Pure and authentic.

Views could be impressive of the Old Town, I would expect so for 18 euros for two people! 9 euros per person is ridiculous, and church itself is nothing to write home about. I would recommend to go to the 24th floor of the Raddison Blu Hotel at sunset (3.30 at this time of year). There you can see a... More

9 euros to take the lift to the top floor and is well worth the visit. You get a 360 degree view of the whole old town part of Riga and on a clear day can see all the way across to the airport
