Art Nouveau

Symbolism of Art Nouveau

Without doubt we can say that Riga is a pearl of Art Nouveau. At the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries before the First World War inhabitants of Riga managed to build around 800 buildings in the Art Nouveau style. Central part of Riga is like open air museum, because all these buildings still decorate streets of our city. In 1997 the central part of Riga was included in the list of world cultural heritage of UNESCO as the most valuable center of buildings of this style. Art Nouveau is really short era, but it has generated masterpieces of architecture. Some of the buildings look like palaces. It would be difficult to visit Riga without seeing such beauties.

This is why we invite you to the Art Nouveau tour. During this tour guide will show you not just Art Nouveau buildings, but consistent pattern and logic between decorative elements and sculptures on the facades of the building. Together with guide you will read a message left by architects. A lot of facades of Art Nouveau buildings are like paintings, which tell us a message. By observing buildings, we will try to understand and imagine thinking of people of that time. Join us on Art Nouveau tour.
