Woman – a head scarf or hoodie, beanie, cap…
Dress is required but if lady is wearing shorts or trousers there is a basket in the entrances and you can use wrap-around dress from that basket.
Man – no hat, cap, hoodie are allowed when entering into the church. Trousers are allowed but in case of shorts – use wrap-around dress which you can find in the basket.
