Riga lives up to its name as probably the world capital of Belle Epoque jugenstil architecture and this street in the old town is one of many pinnacles. Riga is still yet to come of age in terms of friendliness and the embracing of tourism...More

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.

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...More
