Don't miss seeing the tallest structure in the European Union, Riga Radio and TV Tower, and view the city from its 97 m (318 ft) high observation platform. Completed in 1989, the building rises 368 m (1,207 ft) tall, and its three supporting legs take up the space of four ice-hockey rinks. The imposing red-and-yellow structure stands out from its surroundings; take advantage of your visit by taking part in a brief lecture about its features at the observation deck. You'll be able to see the Gulf of Riga on clear days.
