Panorama Riga Observation Deck

About the Panorama Riga Observation Deck

The Observation Desk is located at the Latvian Academy of Sciences near the Riga Ghetto & Latvian Holocaust Museum. It’s open until 10 pm so visitors can take in the spectacular panoramic views during the day, at sunset or at night. In one direction, visitors can see Old Town and the Central Market. In another direction visitors can see what used to be the Jewish Ghetto and Zakusala TV Tower across the Daugava River.
