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.
