Riga is Northern European's Art Nouveau Capital.

The most striking facades can be found on Alberta and Elizabetes Streets.

The buildings in this area were mostly built in the early 20th century. Most of them have been restored to their original magnificence.

Speaking about Riga, locals usually use the term "Art Nouveau", not "modern". The Art Nouveau style is one of the branches of the Art Nouveau style, its German variety. In general, the Albert Street quarter forms an expressive, spatially intimate and peculiarly coordinated urban planning ensemble

The Art Nouveau style is most prevalent in this area. I used my guidebook which listed which streets to see and we were not disappointed. Some of the streets it listed were Alberta iela, Strelnieku iela, Elizabetes iela, Teatra iela, Skunu iela, and Smilsu iela. We had a great time walking up and down the streets looking at all the Jugend style buildings. The neighborhoods are nice and quiet and there are some small shops and bakeries on some of the streets.
GREAT photo ops !!!!!

Riga probably has more buildings of the avant-garde styles of around 1900 than anywhere else. Part of the reason has to do with a sudden burst of entrepreneurship in the late l9th century to accommodate businessmen's families at a time of rapid commercial expansion and the spread of wealth. The merchants and intellectuals wanted buildings that were unconventional, not just imitations of Roman temples or French mansions of the l7th century. The architects learned from the Viennese Sezession group architects, from Germans who used a heavy form of that style called Jugendstil, from some Finns who were trying to create a national style or a regional one, and from some French and Belgian designers who had invented the art nouveau style with its sweeping curves, exaggerated lines, and drooping charms. Riga may have more buildings of this period than anywhere else. You won't run out of things to photograph, and you may wish that your home had as many original, surprising decorations (mostly in plaster) outside. You'll get a huge kick out of the hundreds of original and charming designs in Riga's residential and commercial buildings.

I only went down Albert Street, but what a treat! Nearly every building was in this style, so you had to walk down one side & then the other, lest you miss a gem.

Riga has a lovely Old Town/city (Vecrigo) that is worth visiting in its own right but compared to Tallinn and Vilnius it doesn’t stand out as exceptional. The thing that makes Riga unique is the collection of Art Nouveau buildings that are truly spectacular.
There are some fine examples in the Old Town but to get the best experience you need to take a 10-15 minute walk to the Quiet Centre. You will find about a dozen buildings in the area around Elizabetes Iela, Alberta Iela and Strelnieku Iela. They show the best features of the style and variations over time from the exuberant to the more restrained (like no 2 Strelnieku Iela).
There is a lot more to Riga than these two areas. The urban parks like Bastejkalns which connects the Old Town to the Freedom Monument are worth visiting. You can relax between moving between tourist areas and get away from the crowds.
Riga is a vibrant capital city with good and reliable public transport so be adventurous and visit other areas like the central market and nearby Moscow suburb.
We spent 3 days in Riga which is enough to see the Old Town and Quiet Centre but not enough time to really experience all the city has to offer. I will be returning.

Riga has many beautiful Art Nouveau buildings, especially on Elisabetes iela and Alberta iela. Download a map from the Art Nouveau Museum website and you can read the descriptions of the buildings. It is a lovely way to spend an hour or two.

A walking tour around this area with Alberta iela, Elizabetes iela,skolas iela etc is the best way of enjoying yourself in Riga.Buy the small guide Riga Art Noveau at 10 euro at the Art Noveau Shop opposite the Art Noveau museum and you can see it all without a guide.

This museum is basically a tourist trap despite its inexpensive entry fee. There are examples of Art Nouveau furnishings and displays of architectural drawings which might be interesting to architecture students, but not to the general public. If you are into being photographed in a period hat, they will do that for an additional fee. A much better alternative is to take a free walking tour of the area where the museum is located. We took a tour that explained the architecture and history of the area. The tour took inside the building where the museum is located and we were able to see the beautiful Art Nouveau staircase which is the most elegant feature of the building.

Jugenda is a term for Art Nouveau style, at Albert Street. When seeing the name of the ‘attraction’ in a travel guide, I thought it was a street. Well, actually it is a street—lined with buildings constructed in the Art Nouveau architectural style of the late 1800s ending with World War I. Walk along Albert Street—named for Riga’s founder Bishop Albert—and admire these magnificent buildings, and pop in to Riga’s Art Nouveau Museum, the entrance just around the corner. There's an Art Nouveau shop across from the intersection of Albert Street.
