How to climb the highest tower in Riga
The outline of the tower with a cock on the roof is used depicting Riga (on postcards, advertisment postcards) - it belongs to St. Peter's church

St. Peter Church, Riga

Destroyed during the fire wooden chapel was replaced by 124 meters high steel tower that remains the highest constructions in the city at all times.

How to do?

1. St. Peter's Church is located in the historic centre of the city. Take tram №3 and go to Aspazijas bulvāris stop, then go down Audēju iela street until the intersection with Skarnu iela street. You'll find the entrance into the chapel on 19 Skarnu Street.

2. Buy a ticket at the church box office. Go inside, then upstairs and wait for a lift - it runs every 10 minutes. No spiral stairs, just a few minutes in an overcrowded elevator and you're at the top of the tower.
