Rundāle Palace, 1736–1740, 1763–1768

Rundāle Palace, built in the 18th century, is the most outstanding specimen of baroque and rococo art and architecture. The palace complex with the park is a brilliant example of a feudal residence, not only in Latvia but in the entire Baltic region. In contrast to many European palaces, Rundāle has retained the stylistic integrity of 18th century architecture. It has not been much affected by reconstruction or modernization of later periods. Even the surrounding Zemgale landscape has not changed drastically since the 18th century.
