It's a great monument inside Riga's Old town. The Square is alô great but not só big. However it'a nice spot to take a selfie. It's paid. If tou wanna visit inside you have to buy a ticket.

No. They just appreciate your attendance. Obviously short shorts would be seen as inappropriate but other than that, no dress code
