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. PutPanorama Riga Observation Deck into our Riga holiday planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
