Panorama Riga Observation Deck, Riga

#18 of 367 in Things to do in Riga
Housed in a typical Stalinist-style building, Panorama Riga Observation Deck unites the country's greatest and most well-known scientists. As you approach the 108 m (354 ft) edifice, look for Latvian folk motifs and hammer-and-sickle communist symbols engraved upon it. Enter to see the building's dark, dated interior and climb to the 17th-floor balcony, the main attraction for visitors with its wide views of the city. Grab a booklet from the ticket office to learn more about the building's facts and history. Put Panorama Riga Observation Deck into our Riga holiday planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Building is a marvel, looks similar to the Ghost Busters building in central Park NYC, a gift from Stalin apparently, very windy up top though.  more »
  • The building is definitely reminiscent of the Warsaw Palace of Culture, although it is considerably smaller and lower. It is located in a less well-kept area, where you can meet many homeless. The building (on the 17th floor) has a panoramic terrace. To visit it, you should pay 5 euros, enter the 15th floor elevator and another two floors to defeat the infantry.
