Only Art Nouveau Building in Valka

The building was constructed in 1902, as it is also signified by the inscription above the entrance. Initially, Martinš Udris (Uhder), a pupil of J. Cimze, a reverend and organist of the Lugaz congregation built the house for himself, but later he gave it to public use. Originally, the red brick building with white mortar ornamentation was the site of the Valka county government, and later, in Soviet times, of the militia. Following the tradition, it is now a Latvian national police office.


If you will look on this building carefully, you can see art Nouveau differentia.
