This street and neighboring Elizabetes ieala are great places for any person who is a fan of Art Nouveau. But even if you, like me, have no particular interest in this architectural trend, still go there and take a look, some of the buildings are simply mesmerizing.

If all of Riga were designed like this, the city may have become as popular as Paris or Prague for its beauty. I love the stray cats who hang out in that street. With the art deco buildings and cazts, its a photographer's paradise :) Hope you visit on a sunny day. It makes a huge difference to the colours of the buildings

The shear number of Art nouveau building is staggering. Absolutely gorgeous buildings well maintained and very colourful with carved figures and designs. Well worth a walk around the area to see so many beautiful architectural acomplishments.

A lovely street to stroll along on your way to the art nouveau museum and see examples of the beautiful style of architecture. Be sure to walk both sides to appreciate them all.

This street is definitely worth to visit, in fact all this “embassy quarter” along the Alberta street is a must-see landmark of Riga. The most beautiful art nouveau buildings are situated here, I haven’t seen better art nouveau buildings anywhere in Europe.
