Here you can find some really interesting details about the history of Riga and how it is connected to the Swedish king once upon a time. Stop by and spend a few minutes to get a view of a nice piece of architecture.

Definitely worth to visit to get excellent views and snaps of Riga from the birds' view. Don't worry you won't have to climb to the top of the tower - elevator will help you there.
