Architectural Building
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.

  • In the late 19th century in Riga limited model. This dramatically increased the estimates for construction, but has led to the emergence of a large number of dissimilar to each other. I don't think it has pleased most residents of Riga beskvartirnyh, but a narrow circle of Riga's Moneybags made customer buildings that attract tourists. Quarter is limited to streets and Strelnieku Elizabetes, Alberta. The greatest concentration of Art (or art nouveau) in Alberta. Almost all street work-half even Mikhail Eisenstein. The remaining streets were built according to the projects of other architects-Pekshensa, Laube, Alksnis. Now here there are embassies and offices, and to a lesser extent the building used for human habitation. Due to the abundance of buildings on the pediments of the so-called maskeronov-sculptures and pictures of mermaids, Sphinxes, Lions and other animals-stock lens with zoom will be sufficient.

  • Jugenda Stila Nami is the name of the District art nouveau in Riga, where Alberta Iela and Elisabeta Iela streets concentrated the largest number of exponents with its spectacular façade. Not to be missed.
