Treat yourself to the 3 best museums of Riga

As a recent European capital of culture, Riga, capital of Latvia has been investing in several of its museums lately to turn them into the some of the best up-to-date museums. I recommend 3 must see museums for your Riga visit: The Riga Bourse Art Museum, Latvian Museum of Art, and Riga Motor Museum. The latter two were opened after reconstruction just in 2016. The Riga Bourse Art Museum and Latvian Museum of Art are located in the buildings of high historical and architectural value and are worth seeing just because of that. Those two are in easy reach by foot from the Old town.

The Latvian National Museum of Art (LNMA)

The building of the museum holds just as much cultural and historical significance as thousands of works of art that it houses. The building dates back to the early 1900’s and is highly regarded as an architectural monument of the style known as historicism, representing the city’s heritage.

How to become an expert of Riga’s Art Nouveau architecture in half an hour

How to become an expert of Riga’s Art Nouveau architecture in half an hour

If there is just one reason for visiting Riga, the capital of Latvia, it is the fact that the city has the finest and largest collection of Art Nouveau buildings in the world, with over 800 houses built in this style. More than 438 hectares of the historical Centre of Riga are inscribed onto the UNESCO World Heritage List, recognizing its great collection of outstanding Art Nouveau (Jugendstil) architecture. Janis Krastins, a professor of architecture, said: "In Brussels you pass one or two Art Nouveau buildings when you walk down the street, but here, Art Nouveau is everywhere you look." I am Latvian and sometimes I have a feeling that Latvians are too self critical and reluctant to praise their own country. With this photo essay I would like to make my contribution to advocating the beauty of my beloved Riga. How it all started The Art Nouveau golden age coincided with the city’s rapid economic growth in early 20 century. It was more than 10 years before the disastrous First World War.
