The Art Nouveau district in Riga is the best example of this architecture I´ve ever seen together. After admiring Horta´s work in Brussels, Gaudí´s in Barcelona and strolling all around Oradea in Romania, I can say that architect lovers will be delighted.
You don´t have to take a vehicle for the next highlight. Here all the impressive buildings are next door neighboors.
There are many web pages about the Art Nouveau district, but the one that helped me the most to plan my tour was http://www.art-nouveau.riga.lv/index.php?lang=eng&p=3&pp=0&id=6.
Be ready to spend about 3 hours, because you have to walk each block twice, in order to take pictures across the street.
