Art Nouveau, also known as Jugendstil, is a style in art and architecture that was popular during the last 19th and the early 20th centuries. It’s main characteristics are curves and lines, natural shapes and forms, and, of course, abundance of floral elements. Architects tried to become ‘one element’ with the natural environment. Their incredible effort left us with some of the world’s most beautiful buildings. I thus present you the most famous buildings in the style of Art Nouvea that you can find in Europe!
