Riga Art Noveau

Riga Art Noveau
Riga has the highest concentration of Art Nouveau architecture anywhere in the world – approximately a third of the buildings in the centre of the city are built in Art Nouveau style. Most of the Art Nouveau buildings of Riga date from between 1904 and 1914, a period of rapid economic growth when Riga expanded to become the fifth largest city in the Russian empire and the third largest in the Baltic. Art Nouveau buildings are characterised by geometrical elements and decorative details inspired by folk art and contemporary symbolism. Some of the most flamboyant are on Alberta iela (Albert Street) – here are some details from them.
