Observation Deck Tourist Spot
Don't miss seeing the tallest structure in the European Union, Riga Radio and TV Tower, and view the city from its 97 m (318 ft) high observation platform. Completed in 1989, the building rises 368 m (1,207 ft) tall, and its three supporting legs take up the space of four ice-hockey rinks. The imposing red-and-yellow structure stands out from its surroundings; take advantage of your visit by taking part in a brief lecture about its features at the observation deck. You'll be able to see the Gulf of Riga on clear days. Add Riga Radio and TV Tower and other attractions to your Riga trip itinerary using our Riga vacation route planner.

  • Fascinating built Tower in the Soviet-style with impressive views to the sea. The ride with the elevator, who drives in the curvy built posts, is an experience in itself.

  • Recovery costs around four euros. Against 11 for kolonadu of St. Peter. Is open until late. You can come in the evening and watch the sunset. A few dirty Windows. There is a toilet. :)

Where to stay in Riga

As tourism surges in Riga, accommodation options and variety have grown too. The Baltic capital has quality lodging for every budget, from centrally located and affordable hostels, to private apartments and hotel rooms, to chic main-street hotels. The Old Town, a World Heritage Site, sits at the center of it all, so consider staying here if you want to be in the thick of things. For lower prices, look slightly outside of the city's core but within walking distance. For somewhere a little quieter, check out neighborhoods like Agenskalns and Tornakalns, which are less touristy, well-preserved districts.
