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.

  • Even the guide read that tower is not very popular among tourists. But a thick layer of dust on the glass. Good advertising, there's no denying. We went with a friend Saturday (he looked on the Internet, that it is open). However, we arrived by taxi to the closed gate. It was a Saturday, the day. And at the weekend in the Baltic States come many tourists from Russia. Had to resemble around and leave with nothing. Maybe we don't correctly found the entrance? But in the parking lot near the building of the machine, only one stood out. Or tower is open only in the summer? As far as I know, in Tallinn, for example, is open all year round. And tourists are quite willing to come there. And whole groups of blocking. In Riga the same as understand tourists not very interested.
