Explore the history of Latvia's court through collections at Rundāle Palace. The palace was built in the 1736s as a summer residence for the Duke of Courland--Ernst Johann Biron. 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.
