Rundale Palace Museum (Rundales Pils), Pilsrundale

Explore the history of Latvia's court through collections at Rundale Palace Museum (Rundales Pils). The palace was built in the 1730s as a summer residence for the Duke of Courland. A Berlin sculptor and several Italian painters created most of the interior decorations, including lavish stucco creations. You can visit the Duke's suite with reception parlors and private rooms, and see a fully restored suite of duchess' rooms. Walk through a maze of alleys in a French garden with rose bouquets, pergolas, a green theater, and a fountain. The garden reflects the history of cultivating roses in Europe from the early 18th century onward.

  • Totally agree with all the reviewers, which their reviews before me. Everything is beautiful both inside and out. Of course, in winter, a huge number of roses can be seen only in the form of zamotannyh "figures" with plaques, but for guided tour of the Castle took place in a calm atmosphere, as the number of groups, something at the same time studying and listening to the guides-. In General, all quite interesting and informative.

  • A masterpiece of history and architecture, one of the most famous landmarks in Latvia! The Palace is surrounded by incredible beauty Park 10 ha. In the warmer months here, probably a very nice walk in the Park, but in winter there is something to see. The Palace has been completely renovated. Very interesting to dive into history. For a photo and saw the need to buy a separate ticket. In December, visitors not so much and you can safely walk through the halls. In the basement of the Palace very pleasant Café.

  • Went from Riga on a weekend walk. The Palace did not go because it was a goal to walk. Walked in the Palace park is a gorgeous place! Huge Rosarium, lots of greenery and beautifully decorated flower beds next to the Palace of Apple Orchard! Different varieties of apples and in October already ripe. Imagine how nice when this garden in bloom .... I advise everyone to dip into this silence and beauty!

  • A lot of tourist visiting this place in summer, especially July. This place is popular not only because of the history it has and things to see, but their rose garden especially stands out! The garden is quite big and you can walk and see all the different kind of roses you can imagine. Everyone of the has it's name assigned as well and the date. If you would get tired of roses, you can always check out the labyrinth. Somewhere hidden in it there is a cafe where you can enjoy your tea or lunch.
  • An excellent thing to visit a little bit outside of Riga both for tourists and citizens of Latvia. A beautiful garden and a beautiful interior, plus it's pretty quiet so you can take a walk around the garden mostly by yourself.
  • Wonderful place! Especially when the roses in the garden of Rundale palace are in blossom!
  • Cool place. Huge. Many rooms to walk through. Be sure to check out the gardens there too. You can easily spend a couple of hours there.
  • Wonderfully restored 18 century palace. Everybody must see this palace!
