This is a lovely old street in Old Town Riga. The architecture is so elaborate, it almost seems unreal! While walking on cobblestones is pretty rough, it is worth your while to stop and look up around you every few feet.

Just behind the City Hall, this street epitomizes Vecriga. Hotels Neiburg and Justus, some good restaurants and bars like YOLO and Spot. Just watch out for groups of tourists admiring the facade of Hotel Neiburg.

the building is well maintained by the owners, the idea to expand the style to the next building makes it even better, and it's a good puzzle of little details.

This street is in the old town area and much closer than Alberta street (lela) however, the Jauniela has less contents than the Alberta. In my opinion if you have time, you may catch a taxi to Alberta first and walk down to the old town area.

This charming narrow street is one of the nicest in Riga. Most of it is a walking extension that links from the old town to the St Mary cathedral. It is exceptionally artistic.

I could wander here for hours, just looking up; everything is beautiful. I enjoyed pretty much everything Riga had to offer, but this was one of my favorites.

I have been around this continent seeing the sights for a few years now and this area of Riga with its hundreds of architecturally stunning structures cannot be beat by anything I have ever seen. Brings lots of room on your camera for photos.

Quite stunning art nouveau exteriors- and a few interiors- to be seen along some pretty tree lined streets.

Right in the old town, "Jauniela" it's one of the most representative and beautiful road of the city. Lovely stroll at any hour especially during the evening when this road gets a particular atmosphere given by the beautiful city's lights. Characteristic style buildings, a sort of art nouveau. However a short stroll up and down here it's due.
