Description

Riga is the art nouveau capital of the world, with more than one third of the city centre constructed in this revolutionary style. Besides introducing you to countless beautiful buildings, this tour gives you the chance to learn about different types of art nouveau and how the style changed from the late 19th century to the outbreak of WWI.

Find out whether the city’s art nouveau buildings were a demonstration of wealth and different ideologies, or built out of pure necessity for the rapidly growing population of Riga – the most industrial and wealthy Baltic city of the early 20th century.

We can pick you up from your hotel, or you can meet us at our office – just let us know your preference when booking.
