JJugenda Stila Nami, Riga, Riga

5.0
#18 of 267 in Things to do in Riga
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.

  • So many beautiful old historical buildings to see in this neighborhood. Fantastic examples of architecture. Great walking and sights.  more »
  • We can see a lot of Jugendstil architecture and chose to travel to Riga. Walked through Alberta with Guidebook Jugendstil buildings scattered throughout the city. Alberta Street building is a network of green while repairing some? However, was a little disappointing.

  • A walk through the Jugenstilviertel is to recommend to anyone. It is suitable not only for architects. See also the Museum.

Where to stay in Riga

As tourism surges in Riga, accommodation options and variety have grown too. The Baltic capital has quality lodging for every budget, from centrally located and affordable hostels, to private apartments and hotel rooms, to chic main-street hotels. The Old Town, a World Heritage Site, sits at the center of it all, so consider staying here if you want to be in the thick of things. For lower prices, look slightly outside of the city's core but within walking distance. For somewhere a little quieter, check out neighborhoods like Agenskalns and Tornakalns, which are less touristy, well-preserved districts.
