Lovely cafe with art nouveau style glasses and crockery. We didn't eat there but other people's looked good. Nice coffee, friendly staff and good music. Not too pricey given the area.

A trip to Riga is not complete with a visit to the Art Nouveau district to see the amazing architecture. Some of the buildings are stunning and a few hours wandering around the area taking it all is well worth it.

The art nouveau quarter is a must-see for anyone interested in architecture . It is better to visit it in a sunny day. Most of buildings are designed by Mikhail Eisenstein. The district is very close to city center.

I must say that I loved Riga.Apart from being a beautiful city and having very friendly people it`s absolutely essential to walk along Albert street because you will see the most fascinating facades of houses , which in most cases were designed by the architect Eisenstein.

Our tour guide (from Free Walking Tours) was knowledgeable, informative, and friendly. The art nouveau neighborhood provides a fascinating glimpse of a long-past era with signs of new energy that respects its grand character throughout.

This was an outstanding collection of buildings just north of the old town area that is located within a pleasant 15 minute walk of old town; there are also several buildings within the old town area that have these unique features. Guidebooks don't provide you with the detailed streets (close to 30 buildings).

Northern-European centre of Art Nouveau-style buildings is one of the biggest Riga's gems. Located in Riga Quiet Centre, most of the buildings have been designed by the Russian architect Mikhail Eisenstein at the beginning of 20th century. Popular area for bourgeoisie to live in back then.
