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.

  • On each wall there is one detail that is located in a neighborhood very quiet on left and right side walls are spectacular details have to pay attention because some of these details are up at the top but small buildings

  • Elizabeth street and more importantly Albert Street are the best places to see these incredible art neuveau buildings  more »
  • Facades as appetizing as wedding cakes adorned with fascinating ornaments. Arguably the finest area in the world for art nouveau/jugend buildings. Also non-art buffs will admire them.  more »

  • 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
