Definitely worth a visit up St. Peter's tower. This was my first of several views over the city, and my favourite. Purchase a ticket from inside the large tower to the church for a few Lats. Go inside the church, up some stairs, and then in a lift which a man with a small heater will operate for you.

Beware of the man outside St. Peter's trying desperately to sell you postcards.

Address: Old Town
