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.

We visited Riga in August 2018. We took tickets to a concert instead. The cathedral is impressive. It is worthwhile to combine a visit with a concert of classical music, a lover of course

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