Well worth the trip up in the rather cramped lift. We had the benefit of a clear ,cold December afternoon and we could see for miles . Wrap up well and give it a go ,

This is clearly the best view you can get on Riga, and at the sunset it was splendid. But even the student price seemed expensive to me, and you're supposed to pay to enter the church even if you don't plan to go in the...More

We have been up church towers in Krakow and Prague wishing the last two years - both were delightful and cost £2-3ish - this one charges you 9 Euros, forces you into an ancient lift with a grim looking woman lift operator who orders you...More
