Here are some examples from my hometown - Split, Croatia.

^ Not really Jugendstil/Art Nouveauesque. Rather reduced reformist/neobaroque shapes and details.

Time to get this thread going again! Here's quite a modest jugendstil building.

Does Stockholm have the most examples of Art Nouveau architecture?

I don't think so, we have a few but ultimately I think it just seems like that because I'm a keen poster. Most of Stockholm's jugendbuildings aren't as heavily ornamented as in say Riga, Wien or Prague though and many are what you might call "working class jugend" since the art nouveau period corresponded with a period of heavy urbanization (second industrial revolution) in Sweden.

Another example from down the street of the previous:
Birger Jarlsgatan 18
Built in a jugend/baroque-ish mix in 1899-1900, designed by the firm Hagström & Ekman.

Wikimedia
Sadly I can't seem to find any pictures of the ornamentation. The building was for some years home to a luxury car dealership, designed by Mauritz Dahlberg and Harry Egler and completed in 1939.


Wikipedia
Not jugend, but I felt I had to fill out the otherwise quite meager post with something.

I quite like the overall building, but the first and second floor have been ruined. I assume that there used to be stones there in the same style as the third floor?

That is probably Brussels, Milano, Barcelona or Paris I suspect. I think Helsinki (could be Stockholm too) is perhaps the city in the nordics with most art nouveau style buildings and I believe Ålesund is the one were art nouveau takes up the largest percentage of the historic building mass, but that's only based on personal observation.

Sadly, yes. Below pic is from somewhere between 1900-1920:

Stockholmskällan

Edit: Ålesund looks great. How come it became such a jugendstil haven?

The whole city burned down to the ground in 1904. It had to be fast rebuilt as pretty much the population of city stood without homes after it, so money was poured in from all corners of the country and it was rebuilt during a 3 year period. Luckily it was just at the time when art nouveau was popular here and I believe every building was rebuilt in art nouveau style.

The city was dominated by relatively plain wooden buildings prior to the fire. Here is a picture:

Let's hope. And that they also restore the building to the right which has been replaced with a bland modern building.

Nope, look closer at the details, these buildings are typical Vienna Secession style, more or less adapted to the local Mediterranean surrounding, and are as such described in numerous historical and architectural literature

------------------------------

Here's another beauty from Split; palace Nakić, built in 1902. in the middle of medieval town square

Riga, the capital of Latvia, as well. Usually it is nicknamed as the European Capital of Art Nouveau.

Judging from my personal travel experiences, the architecture in Riga is the most spectacular in the Nordic and Baltic region alongside with Vilnius (capital of Lithuania).

Sort of yes, but Scandinavian architecture pretty much sucks when compared to cities on the other side of the Baltic Sea.

No, in Europe the city would be Riga, Latvia.
