A blue Art Nouveau house.

My experience, Explo description: 

This house was designed in 1903 by Mihails Eizenšteins.

The building facade is rhythmically divided by pilasters, which are decorated with expressive female head masks (symbolizing the beauty).

Window are decorated with monster masks, protecting the home occupants.

Note the blue bricks and stucco ale.

My personal recommendations: 

Riga is a paradise for architecture lovers. Particularly for Art Nouveau fans. I spent 1/2 day visiting some of these buildings, and was very not enough!! Here is the map of my tour:
