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.
