Full description
Your tour will start from Riga hotel with a private transfer by car or minivan to Rundale Palace and after a 1-hour drive arrive in Rundale with its palace. The local guide will explain everything about the history of the palace and will entertain you with several scary tales from the palace's history.

It was built in the 18th century as the summer residence of the Duke of Courland, Ernest Johann von Biron and the palace was supposed to have 2 floors and 2 wings and additional servant's quarters, stables and a park. The construction was inaugurated in 1736 and as von Biron was favored by the Russian Czarina, Anna Ivanovna, he succeeded in engaging the Italian architect, Francesco Bartolomeo Rastrelli, the main architect of the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg. Rundale Palace is the largest and most famous palace in Latvia.

This palace was designed and built by Italian architect Franchesco Bartolomeo Rastrelli. There are a lot of spectacular rooms to see and a beautiful park around the palace. On the way from and to the palace, you will see the interesting countryside of Latvia while driving.
