In Riga Art Nouveau architecture (also known as Jugendstil architecture)is visible almost everywhere. With a total of 750 buildings, Riga is the Art Nouveau capital of the world. Few of the streets you will walk on and see the amazing architecture include:
Elizabetes street 10
At the Elizabetes and Antonija street corners, you will find two of Eisenstein’s best buildings right next to each other. The building with the incredibly long face is one of Eisenstein’s most iconic works of art and architecture. It is also the building that has been photographed the most in Riga. All of Eisenstein’s buildings are beautiful and impressive. The building right next to this one is no exception. It’s got oddly shaped windows and a smiling sun face located right under the balcony.
Blaumana Street 28
On this street, you will find something unusual made by Karl Johann Flesko 112 years ago. The building is nothing short of an incredible spectacle to behold. Being covered in dragons, wolves and different gargoyles, all with gaping mouths.
Jauniela Street 25/29
A while ago this building was briefly abandoned after Latvia gained her independence. However, it was later reopened and converted into an exquisite hotel (Neiburgs). It is a very popular building with an enormous woman’s head hovering above the entrance. Built in 1903, it is massive and painted bright yellow.
