Great and increasingly popular observation point to Riga is the so called "Stalin's birthday cake" - a highrise of Stalinist Classicism built at the 1950ies, similar to buildings in Warsaw and Moscow. From it's panorama deck at the height of 65 metres (which has plenty of space and is never overcrowded, btw) you can see Riga centre from southern side with excellent perspective to Central market, Daugava river, National library, Railway bridge and Old Town. Take a look to the opposite direction and see the less fancy (but still charming) side of Riga - historical suburb of Maskavas forstate, as well as Riga TV Tower in the distance.

Practical information. The adult entrance fee is 6 EUR (one ticket for a child up to 12 years old together with the family - for free). Opened only in the season from April to November, every day from 10 to 22
