Crossing the River Daugava into the most fascinating districts of Riga. Having been called the European Capital of culture, art spills out onto the streets of Riga, especially onto this one. The Alberta street is a walk to remember, with excellent examples of the German Art Nouveau (new art) lining the streets. A part of the old town, this street consists of the most of the 800 buildings with Art Nouveau. Each building deserves a careful look on this street. This is also the most quiet part of Riga. It is almost like an art gallery on the street, you could say!
