We really enjoyed our visit to this incredible palace. We had a fantastic guide - Inge - who walked us through the rooms and she gave us a wonderful tour. Don't skip the marvelous gardens.

The tour of the palace is themed. The tour guides demonstrated dancing and were very friendly, interesting and amusing. The palace itself has been very well restored and is well organised! This is a must see attraction!

If you to go here go in summer or spring. Summers in Latvian is not hot, and there is huge garden beside castle which is astonishing. Inside is very rich made in traditional russian baroque style. Furniture with a lot of details, big halls. I recommend this.

This was not planned. We were heading to Lithuania and we saw signs for Rundale Palace. It may have helped that we had the palace all to ourselves but it was great to see this restored palace.

Beautiful palace, easy to reach by bus for a day trip from Riga. Impressive set of lavish rooms to rival the palaces of St Petersburg. Vast gardens but covered in snow when we visited in November

The people in this part of Lithuania have a treasure in their midst and are working to build on a few decades of renovations. The palace and grounds only need a few hours to tour. Gardens are quite nice considering the size of the palace. We planned on more time than was needed.

I didn't expect that Latvian castle could be so beautiful after Sigulda experience. But it is really very good. Café inside has an excellent cook, she prepared amazing fish soup and tuna salad. My companions orders a pink and dish, it was also very nice. Portion are big and vine choice is rather interesting.

Bauska is the home of Rundale Palace and Rundale Palace Museum, two separate TripAdvisor identified attractions. They’re one in the same, but the Museum tour (highly recommended!) includes a visit to the Versailles-like gardens. Hordes of tour groups thronged through these palatial rooms that house untold value of art. The Palace is the brainchild of architect Bartolomeo Rastrelli, who started... More
