Even if you are not into architecture, you will be amazed by the variety of art nouveax buildings in and around Alberta iela. There is so much to see and such a variety of decor on the outsides of the buildings, including entry ways, balconies, roof decorations. I was particularly fond of all the "faces" that decorated the buildings as well as the Egyptian influence. This area is one of the largest in the world that displays the grandeur of art nouveax. Always to be sure to "look up". I believe that there are some embassies located in one of the buildings as well and it is interesting to see the flags of different nations flying outside the buildings.
