The Art Nouveau Architecture

Over a third of all buildings in Riga are examples of art nouveau architecture and the city is recognized as having the finest collection of art nouveau buildings in Europe. Head to the Alberta iela to marvel at the grand houses that line both sides of the street and look up to take in the colorful facades, intricate stonework and unusual gargoyles. Stroll around the surrounding streets, a designated art nouveau quarter, and pop in to the Art Nouveau Museum to see examples of residential interiors from the era.
