Art Nouveau district
Riga is proud of its architecture, especially the magnificent heritage of Art Noveau architecture, so seize the opportunity to see it, while in Riga. Experts in architecture and art deem that construction of Art Nouveau buildings was especially remarkable in Riga – 40 percent of the buildings in the centre of Riga are in the style of Art Nouveau, hence Riga is justly considered the capital of Art Nouveau architecture. To preserve the architecture of the Old Town, wooden buildings and Art Nouveau to next generations, the Historic Centre of Riga is included in UNESCO World Heritage List.
There are about 800 Art Nouveau buildings in Riga, most of which are concentrated in the centre of Riga, especially in Alberta Street and the so called Quiet Centre or embassy district, where each building is worth seeing. Thus, when walking in Riga, do not only look at the pavement or shop windows, but look up and see the surprising architecture!
