Riga

Visit the biggest gallery of Art Nouveau architecture by Russian architect Mikhail Eisenstein, father of the illustrious filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein who was born in Riga. Most of the buildings have now been renovated and of particular interest is the house at Strēlnieku 4a. Built in 1905 it has since undergone a complete facelift and is now home to the Stockholm School of Economics in Riga. Don't miss the Riga Art Nouveau Museum at the end of Alberta iela, a must see.

I loved wandering around the Art Nouveau district of Riga. The main areas to go to centre around Elisebetes iela,Strelnieku iela and Albert iela. The area around St Gertrudes Church was also interesting and there were some wonderful examples of Art Nouveau architecture in Riga's old town e.g at Jauniela. Definitely worth seeing.
