Walking through the area of Elizabete Iela and Strēlnieku Iela, Alberta Iela, you cannot stop to admire the buildings. Many are being refurbished. They are truly impressive.

Facades as appetizing as wedding cakes adorned with fascinating ornaments. Arguably the finest area in the world for art nouveau/jugend buildings. Also non-art buffs will admire them.

Several beautiful Jugendstil /Art Nouveau houses located in walking distance. We made the walk with a guide and found it excellent. Tip: many tourist groups visit this area, we made the walk in the early hours when it was quiet.

10 min walk from the old town. Since I did not find easily clear info on exactly where I'll write it here. It's mostly the block between Alberta Iela, Elizabete Iela and Strēlnieku Iela. Nice Liberty (Jugendstil) buildings. Some currently under renovation. When I was...More
