Riga and Art Nouveau

Where is Riga? – It’s in Lavia, the middle one of the three Baltic States, others being Lithuania and Estonia. It is about 200 km from my home town, so I am a regular visitor.

What is so special about it? -Well, first of all Riga is the capital of Latvia, so obviously there’s quite many things to see there. What attracted me most, was a wonderful part of the city built in the Art Nouveau style. All of the above pictures are the examples of the style.
