As we walked across the front yard towards the palace, these were the views we saw.

The palace buildings are impressive; although I must say Europe has a lot more palaces which are much grander and more aesthetically pleasing, this is one of the well kept baroque style palace.DSC_0210A

In my future post, I will be posting some views of the interior of the palace.DSC_0207

This is how the Palace is introduced in Wikipedia:

Rundāle Palace , formerly also Ruhenthal and Ruhendahl is one of the two major baroque palaces built for the Dukes of Courland  in what is now Latvia, the other being Jelgava Palace. The palace was built in two periods, from 1736 until 1740 and from 1764 until 1768. It is situated at Pilsrundāle, 12 km west of Bauska.
