As you walk around Riga, be sure to observe JJugenda Stila Nami, Riga, the predominant architectural style of over one-third of the buildings in the city's central district. This movement celebrated artistic freedom and dramatic elements. Accompanying the economic boom of Latvia in the late 19th century, the flamboyant style also appeared in great European cities like Paris, Barcelona, and Moscow. Very quickly it came to dominate Riga, shaping hundreds of its buildings--800 of which can be viewed today. Stroll the streets of the capital and admire the Art Nouveau blend of elements, such as gargoyles and dragons, combined with floral lines and profoundly geometric shapes.

  • Beautiful Art Nouveaux building and area. Easily walkable from most Riga city center lodging. Recommend.  more »
  • Whether Elizabetes iela 10b or Alberta iela 2,4,6,8 or 13... the name Eisenstein guarantees quality! But also others, whether renovated or unrenovated, the houses here are an eye-wide! There is no need to say more about this! Perhaps a hint: As groups of tourists push their way through the streets from 9 a.m., it is appropriate to be there before 9 a.m. or just after 6 p.m.... so you have at least space and time to take pictures, without attracting strangers everywhere and banishing them to celluloid! ;-)

  • Architecture in this area is so unique! Spend some time to see it you won't be disappointed.... Elizabetes street and all tiny streets around...
  • A fantastic bit of architecture showing how it used to be done. Excellent symmetry and design, near to the end of the no4 tram with some similar grand buildings nearby also.
