#7 of 263 in Things to do in Riga
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.

  • A street in the area with all the consulates and ministeries. So they keep it nice and tidy. Very cool building exteriors. A bit far from old town (15 min by walk) but worth a visit, especially if you like seeing cool architecture.
  • One of the best culinary experiences in my life. The overall mood of the restaurant is refined. A special note to the cuisine it's exelent with a touch of freshness .
  • The most beautiful street in Riga. I wish i had gone during the day. Do not miss seeing this beautiful architecture while you are in town.
  • Stunningly beautiful houses. Many of them are being renovated, because of the 100 year anniversary next year. Still absolutely worth the visit. Remember to close your mouth as you stop to stare at the beautiful art on the buildings
  • Incredible art Nouveau buildings - probably the best anywhere in the world. Definitely a must see in Riga.
