This one of a a number of viewing spots in the high part of the old town. Good places to rest and to take in the surroundings of Riga!

Another platform for viewing purposes. Again, it gives good views of the city and as always, a cleared sky day will make it more beautiful to view

Some great views of the city, thoroughly recommend walking up to the viewing platform during a clear spring or summer day. The walk up to the platform also has some great sights and you'll encounter some of the historic buildings and city walls.
