Take your time at Alberta Iela, examining the variety of historical Art Nouveau buildings adorned with sculptural decorations, balconies, columns, and other elements characteristic of the period. The street bears the name of the legendary founder of Riga, the Bishop Albert. Each of the buildings is an inimitable 20th-century architectural gem. Stop in front of the No. 4 to explore its reliefs and sculptures depicting jellyfish heads, sun symbols, and winged lions. Visit the museum at the end of the street to see what one of Riga's residential interiors looked like at the beginning of the 20th century.

  • The buildings are beautiful but if you want photos I would suggest that you find out if and when the sun lights up the street.Mid afternoon in early September has 3/4 in shadow.
