Riga Art Nouveau

Riga, Latvia

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 Noveau buildings was especially remarkable in Riga – 40 percent of the buildings in the centre of Riga are in the style of Art Noveau, hence Riga is justly considered the capital of Art Noveau architecture.   To preserve the architecture of the Old Town, wooden buildings and Art Noveau to next generations, the Historic Centre of Riga is included in UNESCO World Heritage List.
