Dram: Jugendstile

Rigajugenstil1 Rigajugenstil2 Rigajugenstil3
Riga, Latvia, is known for its "jugendstile" -- a style of architecture similar to Art Nouveau -- which can be seen throughout the New Town. The most famous collection of these buildings is on Alberta iela (street) and during my extensive walking tour I checked it out. I don't know much about architecture styles, but I was pretty impressed and thought it would be "worth a Dram" to share a couple of my favorites. (As always, you can click on the thumbnail photos above for larger images.)
