Full description
Discover Riga's most amazing art nouveau buildings on this walking tour of Latvia's largest city. A century ago, Riga, just like other European cities, was swept away by a style of architecture and living inspired by a longing for creative freedom and daring opulence. This style became known as art nouveau. By learning from nature, delighting in bunches of flowers, and ornamentation, art nouveau rendered Riga more lavish, mysterious, and seductive. Raise your eyes upwards and discover Europe’s most beautiful art nouveau buildings while you learn the fascinating history behind them. Walk away with a newfound knowledge and appreciation for the relatively recent art form.

    Interessant für alle Jugendstil-Liebhaber

    Unser Tourguide war sehr freundlich. Sie hat zu vielen Bauwerken etwas über Architekt oder Smybolik erzählt und darüber hinaus auch auf die allgemeinen Sehenswürdigkeiten in Riga hingewiesen. Manchmal hätten wir uns ein paar tiefergehende Erklärungen zu den Bauten gewünscht. Die Tour ist für diejenigen, die sich für Jugendstil interessieren, hervorragend. Es gibt so viel zu sehen, dass man von der Führung ausgehend auch noch ein paar Gebäude im Alleingang entdecken kann.

    very interesting two hours

    Initially, our guide Ilze, a very friendly and competent person, spoke very quickly, as if memorized. She answered our interim questions only very briefly, then it went on immediately in "her text". But that got better over time, she probably sensed that we really wanted to know more.
