The first question you probably got is where you can get this panorama view. Easy answer: It is on the Latvian Academy of Sciences. It is 107 metres high and  believed to be the first high-raise building in Latvia.

Designing and construction started in 1951 and ten years later in 1961 construction was completely finished.
It is build on a graveyard, on a place where until 1812 a small Lutheran cemetery and a church were located. Architects were Osvalds Tilmanis, Vaidelotis Apsitis  and Karlis Pluksne.
