Full description
Explore the Art Nouveau architecture of Riga with a knowledgeable local guide. Stroll the streets of Latvia's capital and marvel at building facades covered in dragons, wolves, and gargoyles - art nouveau’s dalliance in the macabre. Learn about the city's distinctive look and how 40 percent of all the buildings in central Rīga were built in the Art Nouveau style, marking the city like no other in the world. Start near the old town, which is surrounded by an arch of boulevards and parks, and enjoy the beautiful flower beds, trees, freshwater springs, and statues. Hear stories of the city's most prolific Art Nouveau architects, such as Mikhail Eisenstein, and find the collection of his buildings on Alberta Iela, which is famous for its unusual sculpture, colored tiles, geometric ornaments, and uniquely shaped windows. Continue to the Art Nouveau Museum for a fascinating look at an Art Nouveau apartment, where even the bathroom and kitchen are adorned with Jugendstil elements.
