Riga radio and TV tower, Latvia
Riga

For more than 20 years, the radio and television tower on Zaķusala Island has been an integral part of Riga panorama. Its height is 368 metres, which makes it the tallest tower in the European Union. Take a lift and within 40 seconds you are closer to the sky — on an observation deck 97 metres above the ground. The view is incredible: if the weather is good, you'll see ships in the Gulf of Riga and highest objects in Sigulda.


The tower was finished in 1989. It's technically fully supplied for 250 years; even if a 7.5 earthquake occurs, the tower would stay where it is. The tower is located on an area of more than 4 ice-hockey rinks.

More About Riga

Originated from a small fishermen village, for centuries Riga has been an important part of the trade chain between Russia and Western Europe. A lively crossroad of cultures and backgrounds for over 800 years, the historical centre of Riga has accumulated an impressive cultural baggage and today is justly included in the UNESCO’s World Heritage list.
