Art Nouveau in Riga
Walking tour – Art Nouveau in Riga
Riga is proud of its magnificent heritage of Art Nouveau architecture. It was included in the UNESCO World Heritage list because of the outstanding quality and quantity of Art Nouveau buildings unparalleled anywhere in the world.
The walk will lead you through Old Riga to the Art Nouveau district which features the creations of the most controversial Art Nouveau architect Mikhail Eisenstein and where each building is worth seeing.Decorated with various symbols and mythological characters, each building tells us a different story. Scary lion and screaming men's masks side by side with contemplative women’s faces, mysterious sphinxes, delicately carved flowers, birds and animals - it is easy to get lost in such an abundance of images. But don’t worry - our guides will help you interpret the symbolic content of the decorations, and tell you a lot of myths and legends.
