Very beautiful buildings & totally worth seeing : Alberta Iela ( name of the street ) It's very peaceful & you have a lot of buildings in this style, makes you want to live in one of those houses for sure

As Albert and Elisabeth streets are the main Art Nouveau venues in Riga, they're both out of the Old town. Jauniela is the same, but in the very center of the Old town, just by the imposing Dom Church. Really nice buildings to be seen, but look up.

Beautiful area in Riga; buildings with different architectural style but mostly Art Nouveau. Be sure to look at the intricate carvings on the facade of each building. Each 'theme' different from the other.

Riga is blessed with a rich inventory of historical buildings. Some of them have so much going on the you get dizzy trying to see it all. Other buildings will make you laugh at it all.

A loose comparison is San Francisco’s Queen Anne and Painted Ladies Victorian homes. This street doesn't have the hoards of tourists that many of the... More

Riga lives up to its name as probably the world capital of Belle Epoque jugenstil architecture and this street in the old town is one of many pinnacles. Riga is still yet to come of age in terms of friendliness and the embracing of tourism (some post-soviet surliness lingers in the way locals deal with visitors, but this is disappearing... More
