4.6/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web
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. Alberta Iela is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Riga Edition.

  • At an estimated 200 m long street joins a beautiful Art Nouveau building on the other. Most are great renovated, others waiting to have surgery.

  • Walk these streets is a mandatory point in Riga. Many stunning detail decorating houses. Really worth it.

  • Architecture connoisseurs may enjoy this walk, but the eye of the man in the street will not see anything outstanding. If you bypassed the entire old town and frankly engaged as well, you can take a stroll.

  • All the tourists are coming to see this beautiful street. It's awesome that people could make something so excellent.
  • Take your time to walk through this magnificent street. On both sides there are Art Nouveau buildings. Many were designed by Michail Osipovič Ėjzenštejn, father of Sergej, the filmmaker.
  • The must go street for architecture fans. Even you're not into buildings, but the street provides an excellent samples of art nouveau design from the late 1800s until before the first world war. Look for the three medusa heads on #4. They're spooky.
  • Stunning buildings all around this beautiful street that is the center of jugend quarter. A must visit while in Riga.
  • The most beautiful street in Riga.
