An extremely decorated Art Nouveau building.

My experience, Explo description: 

This building was designed in 1905 by Mihails Eizenšteins.

This Art Nouveau building is very eclectic, extremely decorated, mixing traditional forms of historical styles layered pervades with a wide range of Art Nouveau motifs.

During the Soviet time, it was used as a dormitory. In 1994, it was transformed into the school of Economics in Riga.

On the left side of the building, have a look at an other interesting Art Nouveau building, now hosting the Iris embassy.

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:
