Take your time at Alberta Iela, examining the variety of historical Art Nouveau buildings adorned with sculptural decorations, balconies, columns, and other elements characteristic of the period. The street bears the name of the legendary founder of Riga, the Bishop Albert. Each of the buildings is an inimitable 20th-century architectural gem. Stop in front of the No. 4 to explore its reliefs and sculptures depicting jellyfish heads, sun symbols, and winged lions. Visit the museum at the end of the street to see what one of Riga's residential interiors looked like at the beginning of the 20th century.

Where to stay in Riga

As tourism surges in Riga, accommodation options and variety have grown too. The Baltic capital has quality lodging for every budget, from centrally located and affordable hostels, to private apartments and hotel rooms, to chic main-street hotels. The Old Town, a World Heritage Site, sits at the center of it all, so consider staying here if you want to be in the thick of things. For lower prices, look slightly outside of the city's core but within walking distance. For somewhere a little quieter, check out neighborhoods like Agenskalns and Tornakalns, which are less touristy, well-preserved districts.
