Walking through the area of Elizabete Iela and Strēlnieku Iela, Alberta Iela, you cannot stop to admire the buildings. Many are being refurbished. They are truly impressive.

Facades as appetizing as wedding cakes adorned with fascinating ornaments. Arguably the finest area in the world for art nouveau/jugend buildings. Also non-art buffs will admire them.

Several beautiful Jugendstil /Art Nouveau houses located in walking distance. We made the walk with a guide and found it excellent. Tip: many tourist groups visit this area, we made the walk in the early hours when it was quiet.

Beautiful area of the city with some gorgeous buildings. There is quite a bit of renovation going on in parts, but still plenty of fantastic facades to see.

Sorry, these old streets are very uneven and a lot of them are cobblestones that could be problematic for you. Perhaps your best bet would be the red hop on and off bus tour that has headphones in every language and see the... More
