I have studied art Nouveau for 20 years and Santa the guide had so much knowledge and it was an amazing tour. I took 3 hours rather than the regular 2 hours as there is more art Nouveau in Riga than any city in the world. I know because I have been everywhere else. I return back to London enriched and yearning to come back to Riga.
