  • The street in the center of Riga is named after the founder of Riga Albert von Buxgevden. The street is about 200 meters long. Eight houses are architectural monuments, most of them designed by Michael Eisenstein, father of director Sergei Eisenstein. In one of the houses the architect's family lived. The street is called the "pearl of jugendstil." There are a lot of details on the houses: gorgons, sphinxes, plant ornaments, lions. All houses are very different from each other, but Eisenstein's "handwriting". by the end of the tour, well recognized. It's a diplomatic quarter, the yards are closed, there's no cafe, there's nowhere to sit. There is a museum of jugendstil. Some houses are under renovation. Nearby is a posh park.
