-Rundale Palace & Bauska Castle with English speaking guide
Rundale Palace is one of the most outstanding monuments of Baroque and Rococo art in Latvia. It was built between 1736 and 1740 as a summer residence of Duke Ernst Johann of Courland.
The Italian architect Francesco Bartolomeo Rastrelli designed Rundale Palace and supervised construction work.
The major part of the interior was made in the period between 1765 and 1768.
The first written records of the Bauska Castle date back to 1443 when the Order of Livonia built a fortress at the confluence of the rivers Musa and Memele.
At the end of the 16th century Gothard Kettler, the first Duke of Courland, transformed the fortress into a fortified residence. In the 17th and 18th centuries a fortification was built around the castle. In 1706, during the Northern War, the castle was blown up and partly destroyed by the Russian army. In 1973 reconstruction work started on the Duke’s residence. At present the ramparts around the castle, the ruins of the Order’s Castle and the sightseeing platform in the central tower are accesible to the public. Visitors can also take a guided tour of the Duke’s residence which is still under reconstruction.
