Other Riga Bicycle tour

Riga is full of contrasts, one of the biggest being Art Noveau and the Moscow district. Although they are polar opposites, there is a great part of Riga’s history behind both. Art Noveau in Riga is one of the top attractions that have to be seen when visiting the city. Riga is known to have the highest concentration of art nouveau buildings in the whole world, having around 800 beautiful examples all throughout the city. Started in the 1900s, Art Noveau, also known as Jugendstil, came to predominate Riga’s suburbs. Now Alberta street, where the most famous art nouveau houses are located is known to be one of the most luxurious areas of Riga.

The Moscow district on the other hand in the 19th century was one of the first areas to develop outside the city defenses. The unseen, maybe even different part of Riga is rich in Russian and also Jewish history, during the Nazi occupation it was turned into a ghetto for Jews. Nowadays, it’s considered a shady place with wooden buildings where tourists are told to stay away from, despite having so much interesting history behind. All that and more you will be able see during our Other Riga bike tour.
