The Palace is designed by Francesco Bartolomeo Rastrelli, and is one of the most beautiful palaces in the Baltic region. The work begon 1736 and the building was intended as a summer palace for Ernst Johann Biron. Biron was exiled for 20 years and the works stopped. After Biron returned the works were finished. The interiors were renovated in Rococo style.
The rooms have served as government offices, an elementary school and a granary. The restoration begun in 1972, and is not totally finished. When we were there 2 weeks ago, we couldn't see the library because works was in progress in the library.
Also the gardens are fantastic, there must be at least 3000 different roses.
