August 15 and 16, 2020

In the neighbourhood of Alberta Street 

The neighbourhood of Alberta Street is among one of the most significant walking sites in Riga, recognised throughout the world. The eclectic, decorative Art Nouveau buildings by Mikhail Eisenstein sit alongside those built in the national Romantic style designed by Konstantīns Pēkšēns and Eižens Laube. The tour has been specially created for the festival and will be led by guides dressed in clothes from the Art Nouveau period, taking participants back to Rīga in the early 20th century.

The tours are free of charge and will commence from the Art Nouveau museum entrance. Advance bookings can be made through the museum’s Facebook page, by phone 67181465 or by e-mail:
