Trip Planner:   Europe  /  Latvia  /  Riga Region  /  Riga  /  Alberta Iela
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.

  • One of several streets, Alberto Street, Alberto Iela (by Bishop Albert of Buxhoeveden) created in the early twentieth century. Colourful modern and eclectic constructions. Russian, German and Baltic architects are its authors. The time is insufficient to hear the descriptions of the guide and take all the photos one would like. In the center of Riga, Latvia, not for nothing is a World Heritage Site. A delight for architecture lovers.

  • Both day and night views are perfect. The street itself is rather short, but each house on it deserves to be viewed thoroughly  more »
  • Beautiful area with beautiful buildings, a lujazo to be able to take a walk through these streets. It won't leave you indifferent
