Jugendstil Building

Riga, Jugendstil Building

Rīga’s Jugendstil buildings surprise everyone both in their quantity and their high quality of workmanship. Although Alberta and Elizabetes Streets are particulary well-known for Jugendstil architecture, these beautiful buildings can be seen in all parts of the city that were built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Old Town

Riga, Old Town

Established in 1201, the old center of Rīga was enircled by fortifications until the mid 19th century. Here one can find the oldest buildings in Rīga: the Dome Cathedral, St. Peter’s Church, St. John’s Church, St. Jacob’s Church, the ”Three Brothers” houses, and Rīga Castle, which also houses the Latvian History Museum and the Foreign Art Museum. The centerpiece of Rātslaukums Square is the reconstructed Blackheads’ House, which was destroyed in World War II and is now home to the Rīga Council.
