As you walk around Riga, be sure to observe JJugenda Stila Nami, Riga, the predominant architectural style of over one-third of the buildings in the city's central district. This movement celebrated artistic freedom and dramatic elements. Accompanying the economic boom of Latvia in the late 19th century, the flamboyant style also appeared in great European cities like Paris, Barcelona, and Moscow. Very quickly it came to dominate Riga, shaping hundreds of its buildings--800 of which can be viewed today. Stroll the streets of the capital and admire the Art Nouveau blend of elements, such as gargoyles and dragons, combined with floral lines and profoundly geometric shapes.

  • The Art Nouveau district (or jugendstil) is worth a visit. Vie with well preserved buildings that reflect and are the example as a metropolis such as Brussels, Paris and Barcelona. It is worth noting that throughout the city there are scattered examples of Art Nouveau architecture.

  • Riga's Jugendstil is an amazing experience of all that is best in Art Nouveau architecture.. The fantastic museum very close to Alberta iela gives details of why Riga so many Jugendstil buildings were built.The buildings are all different and the details on them are just superb.
  • Beautiful area, crowded with nice and cosy cafes.
  • Might be one of the most modern museums I've ever been to. I love it
