Take a journey through the different interpretations of Art Nouveau. From highly decorative to more intellectual designs, these buildings were built in line with Art Nouveau values: creations designed to be not only beautiful but also functional. Find out if these buildings live up to this expectation from an experienced and multi-lingual guide. Join your guide in central Riga and walk through the Old Town to the Art Nouveau district, home to creations from the most controversial Art Nouveau architect, Mikhail Eisenstein. Learn about Eisenstein's history living in what was then the most important port city in the Russian Empire. Walk along the famous Alberta street and hear stories of the notable Latvian, German, Russian, and Jewish architects who have left their distinctive features on the city's Art Nouveau houses. Admire the rich ornamentation on some facades and learn how national romanticism was built into the design of others.
