Had a brief visit here which allowed us only into the initial foyer of the building. The outside was impressive, but inside they wanted payment to go in. We decided not to bother paying.

While the cathedral is impressive, the cloisters a amazing. Loads of cannons and old bits and pieces. Also a nice place to sit for a few mins away from the city!

We went to the Dome to enjoy the organ concert. Usually it’s a few days a week by noon and only about twenty minutes. Perfect for a rest when you’re exploring the town. Included in the fee for the concert is the possibility to see...More

Located at the centre of Riga, this cathedral is one of the important places of worship for Rigans. The interior has a very simple but elegant design. It costs €3 euros to get in and you may expect to spend half an hour inside.

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.

Nice to go in and have a look round inside. It’s nice atmosphere, not much to see no tower to go up.

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