Why locals love it

Im not sure locals love this building but it does add to Riga's skyline.

Why you should visit it

The academy, also known as "Stalin's birthday cake", was erected in 1958. The best sightseeing tower in Riga tells the story of Soviet glory and cultural grace, represented only in architecture and export numbers.

Special tip

The roof terrace is open every day 8am-10pm, admission 2.50 Ls during the summer months.
