My wife and I recently visited this Cathedral while in Old Town Riga. A beautiful structure with lots of history. The red brick Cathedral’s organ boasts a 6,789 pipes. Well worth a visit when in Old Town Riga!

We were staying in a hotel right on the back of the Cathedral. So we got to walk by many times and couldn’t have seen it too many times. A beautiful site in a beautiful town

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