    Rundale Palace Museum (Rundales Pils)
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission excluded
    Visit of Rundale Palace museum and garden. In 1735 Duke of Courland Ernst Johann von Biron bought land in Rundāle with an old medieval castle in the territory of a planned summer residence. The old castle was demolished and construction after the design of Bartolomeo Rastrelli started in 1736. Under the supervision of Rastrelli its construction was finished in 1768. Johann Michael Graff produced lavish stucco decorations for the palace during this time. Ernst Johann von Biron loved the palace and moved there already in 1768. He often visited palace and spent summers there until his death in 1772. After the German occupation in World War I when the German army established a hospital and a commandant's office there. During the French invasion of Russia in 1812, the palace was used as a hospital for Napoleon's army. At the end of the 19th century, the palace and park were restored and reconstructed.

I made plans with Karlis in December for a day trip to Rundale Palace in August. Karlis responded to inquiries promptly and was able to meet all our needs. We had a driver who was safe and on-time. We did a self-guided tour through the palace and through Meznote Palace also. Because we weren't interested in Bauska, we also made a stop at a charming tea house at Elesa (spelling?) that had recently been refurbished.

We also used this service for a very early morning airport transfer, and again on-time and safe. We very much appreciated both!

Driven to Rundale and dropped at the ticket office. This is not a tour. Vehicle is comfortable enough, but driver barely said a word. Rundale is an interesting place.

Dear Chris, Tour description states that it is service with English speaking driver and not Guide service. Guide services in Rundale palace can be arranged at additional cost and we can help prebook it. We are very sorry that you expected more then transportation services. You where serviced by one of our new drivers and he should be more involved in conversation on the way to palace. We are sorry that we did not met your expectations. Kind regards, Baltic Transfers Team
