A beautiful Lutheran cathedral is a must visit in the city. Entrance to the cathedral costs €3 per person and this offers entrance to the gardens too. Be mindful that they don't allow any drinks inside and no calls are allowed within the premises.

I had the opportunity to stop and visit Riga Cathedral during my walking tour of the old City. It's an impressive work of architecture. It is set as the focal point of the area, and is well worth stopping to admire.

Worth a visit for 1 hour or so. Interesting interior. There are several churches around but all worth a visit. Some are more ornate than others. Men should remove their hats in all places of worship and respect the instructions regarding clothing, cameras etc.

In Winter has a particular appeal, snowwflakes are not annoying, and even the paved roads - so difficult to walk- are nice. The Cathedral is worth a visit!!

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