This is by far the most popular vantage point in Riga. Many of the city's classic panorama views you find on the internet are taken from here. St Peter's church tower offers an observation platform at the height of 72 meters (it's accesible by an elevator, so you can spare your legs for more city exploration walks on the street level). 

St Peter's church is located in Old Town, right in the middle of the city, thus it provides centrally located panorama point to whole Riga. The views are good indeed - you can see the sea of Old Town's and historical centre rooftops, compositions with Daugava river and the modern buildings on the other bank of the river, up to soviet apartment block districts in the periphery.
