Riga is definitely a city with beautiful architecture everywhere, but especially stunning are the Art Nouveau buildings. This luxurious, totally decorative style of architecture is one of the main reasons why the historical centre is included on the UNESCO World Heritage List and why those who appreciate culture and art visit Riga in the first instance. This tour will introduce you to so-called "beautiful era" or La Belle Époque in the beginning of 20th century, when Riga was one of the wealthiest cities in Europe. Our lovely and professional guides will explain you the philosophical meaning hidden behind the luxury facade decorations and will show you some stunning Art Nouveau examples - the most famous ones on Alberta Street and those that only locals know. The tour also includes visit to Art Nouveau Museum that has an unique collection of Art Nouveau design, art & furnishings.
