Full description
Discover some of Europe's most beautiful Art Nouveau buildings on this guided walking tour through Riga. The Latvian capital has long been known to have one of the world's greatest collections of Art Nouveau architecture, so let your guide show you around central Riga's elegant neighborhoods. The Art Nouveau architectural style arose in the late-19th century in Brussels, at a time when Riga and Latvia in general were at their peak of economic prosperity. The Art Nouveau architectural style quickly became popular, and today there are about 800 Art Nouveau buildings still standing in Riga. This tour includes a walk down Elizabetes Street and Alberta Street, both home to the city's most ornate and impressive Art Nouveau buildings, giving you plenty of time to take in the splendor of this grand and artistic architectural style. Learn all about this history of these areas, and what they represent today as part of the exciting city of Riga.

    We had none as a guide. She was professional, had structured the tour and was able to respond to ours if not only Riga but the whole country. We are happy and really think everyone should take the time to go on this tour, it gave so much.

    Nice tour, but ready after 1.5 hours

    Nice, informative tour, guide had a lot of knowledge, could also explain well. Guide was not quite prepared (wanted to start the city tour and was surprised that we had booked the Art Nouveau tour) and was finished after 1.5 hours (tour should take 2 hours). Overall, however, recommended.
