There are over 800 amazing Art Nouveau structures throughout the city, but the greatest concentration is on Alberta iela, a street largely built in a flurry of creativity by a single architect, Mikhail Eisenstein.
ACCESSIBLE PRIVATE TOURS AT BALTIC SEA PORTS OF CALL

Take a look at our tours below, pick your Baltic adventures and let us take care of the rest! Our tour guides are attentive, have years of experience in entertaining both young and experienced travelers to make sure everyone makes unforgettable memories.
We booked Nordic Experience handicap accessible tours for three different countries (Denmark, Estonia, and Sweden). We were a group of 14 people, ages ranging from 10 to 72. All three tours were amazing, our guides and drivers were kind, friendly, had great knowledge of each of the countries we visited and were very attentive to our needs and requests (specially my dad´s needs who has polio hence needs handicap assistance). They gave us exact instructions as to where we should meet our guides/drivers, and they were always on time.
I highly recommend this tour company to anyone who is looking for a handicap accessible tour. You can request a handicap accessible van which has an integrated lift, hence the person can stay in his/her scooter when getting on and off the bus, making it very easy to visit all places. All places visited are handicap friendly, guides are very flexible regarding your needs.
When booking, you can also ask for guides who speak a certain language and they will do everything in their possibilities to make sure they can provide it to you. Another great perk when booking with Nordic Experience is that the more tours you book with them, the better price you will receive.
I highly recommend using Nordic Experience tours for your next Baltic trip.
