Riga Old Town and Art Nouveau Private Walking Excursion

We absolutely lovds the tour, especilly the Art Nouveau portion. But what I wanna focus on is our fantastic guide Santa! Here's the story: I made a mistake in scheduling activities for the day. I called Santa in the morning and she said no problem and agreed to come earlier. ...Melissa T., United States – See more reviews

Appreciate art at its finest and walk to Art Nouveau district. Riga is similar to a museum of architecture, covering the period from Gothicism to Classicism. Hold your breaths as the real treasure of the city is the largest and best-preserved collections of Art Nouveau buildings in the world. This fact was corroborated by UNESCO in 1997 and now the central section of Riga is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. This is the reason why Riga is sometimes called the "capital" of Art Nouveau. Alberta Street and the western part of Elizabetes street are considered to be the heart of Art Nouveau in Riga. Get acquainted to the different symbols of Art Nouveau, and see samples of these art pieces. Visit Art Nouveau Museum which is an authentic flat preserved in Art Nouveau style in Art Nouveau building.
