You can see how importand people leaved in those times. Where they used to entertain, eat, sleep, read books, play pool – everything. Many interesting room – each unique and saturated with details. Garden is a separate story – nothing was blooming at the time we were there, but still very nice place. Also there is a nice excebition undegraund... More

Lavishly decorated and a beautifully maintained snapshot of 19th century Latvia (although quite obviously the incredibly wealthy and aristocratic parts of 19th century Latvia). The architecture of the different buildings is breathtaking and the gardens are pretty much worth a visit on their own, and help tie together the overall image of opulence that Rundales Pils gives you. Can get... More

While visiting Rundale's palace you will forget that it's 21st century and will catch yourself thinking of how it was to be around when the palace was just built and it was filled with royalty swinging in and out on a daily basis. The palace is fully renovated and it just looks stunning, not to mention the gardens. I wish... More

If you are fond of 19th century nobility life, then that is the place to go! The palace rooms were renovated and furnished according to these times. In each room there is a description of each object that is located there (in English as well). The garden is amazing! Very beautiful place that allows you to travel through time (at... More

Rundale Palace is about a 1 hour drive from Riga and is well worth visiting. The palace has been extensively renovated and has wonderful rooms and exhibitions with explanation cards in English. We were there in winter so could not enjoy the gardens but they are extensive and must be magnificent from late spring onwards. It seems that the BBC... More

Lovely gardens and the palace itself looks really good after it was refurbished. Full of historical exhibitions. A nice place to spend a day out.

Late spring and summer is the best time for visiting Rundale Palace as for it`s magnificent garden. Romantic alleys of trees, creepers and bushes, flower queens roses and other beauties. In the middle of it you can have coffee, tea, glass of vine in the small cafeteria or just take a seat on one of the garden benches to feed... More
