Ornated facades

Famous American architecture historian Aaaron Betsky has written that Riga "gains its character from its facades, and those are eclectic, to say the least. No place I know displays more variety of materials, compositions and styles in repetitive blocks and stretches of streets than Riga." And that is true - Riga has very interesting, diverse and rich facades which can be explored countless hours. They have so many refined sculptures, ornaments. Here a fragment from Old Town, Smilšu street.
