It's definitely a superb height. You can see it from much of the area south of the city and along the river. You can also go up and take in a view on a long elevator ride. It would be nicer if they maintained it...More

We knew nothing of this before seeing it in Riga skyline. Always try to go up 'big pointy things' when visiting cities, so set off from hotel with tower clearly in view. Took us a while and started to doubt that it was open to...More

After visiting the Vilnius TV tower I thought that it's finally time to visit the one in my home city. The road leading there is mildly put, terrible. If you're going via public transportation, be prepared to walk as the closest bus stop is a...More

Highly advertised, poorly maintained tourist attraction. To go up with an elevator took more time than to be up there. Nothing much to see.

I love engineering and I love buildings,which is why I felt a strong attraction to this building bordering on obsession as soon as I (accidentally) saw it from a distance on my way to see a different sight. I too found it really odd that...More

We had planned to visit the tower before we got to Riga & it was worth the effort. It's a bit off the beaten track & was deserted as far as tourists go! But that didn't stop us.. The views from the panoramic gallery are...More

And yet they don't use it. Anyway the price is low and for that you can get up to 200m to have kind of panoram view to Riga. But... The windows are very dirty so it don't offer the right feeling. And its very empty,...More
