This is a tour dedicated to all things Art Nouveau in Riga and focusing in the period of the early 1900s, leading up to the end of the Russian Empire. A great way to see more, learn about art styles and trends of the early 20th Century and discover Riga’s magical Art Nouveau architecture.
Discover the main streets of Riga best known for Art Nouveau architecture, such as Alberta iela and Elizabetes iela, as well as streets and areas less discovered and frequently missed by visitors. With literally hundreds of buildings in the style across Riga we offer you to see how the movement adapted to the Northern tastes of Riga, how it evolved and where it lead too.
A must do tour for all those interested in the Art Nouveau movement, its arts and architecture.
The demand to visit and explore Riga's Art Nouveau architecture has lead us to create this new tour to our portfolio. We will lead you through areas of Riga, where we can discover a wide range of Art Nouveau styles and not only focus on the extremely touristic streets that most Art Nouveau tours visit.
What will you see on The Riga Art Nouveau Free Tour?
We aim to show how the style in Riga developed from 1900 all the way through to the First World War and how elements such as National Romanticism intertwined into Art Nouveau and how Riga flourished creatively at the end of the Russian Empire.
This is a story about the turn of the 20th Century as much as it is about architecture and you are sure to come away with a better understanding of much more than simply the Art Nouveau Movement.
PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR TOUR ROUTES MAY CHANGE ACCORDING TO RESTRICTIONS SUCH AS BUILDING WORK OR EVENTS BEYOND OUR CONTROL.
Come a long and join us today! This is a new tour so we have smaller groups and more personal atmosphere on this tour.
