Rundale Palace and it´s lavish grounds are a true national treasure hiding away by the plains of southern part of the country, one-hour drive from the capital city of Riga. This area is often referred to as the “bread basket” of the country for seemingly endless fields which offer a peculiar contrast with the palace´s opulent style.

The stunning Baroque buildings and garden ensemble itself, though owned by the same family with German ancestry for more than 400 years, is today a work of two very ambitious people. Anna Ivanovna, the noble widow of Duke of Courlanda later Empress of Russia and the duke himself. Designed by posh Italian architects, looted by the Napoleon´s Grand Armée and later nationalized by the government in the 20th century only to be used as a gymnasium by the Soviet army. Amazingly this masterpiece of 43 separate rooms with an adjacent formal Baroque garden has seen and survived it all.
We will take our time to enjoy the private apartments, grand halls and delightful parks on a guided tour before sitting down for a lunch break at a local restaurant. There will be also some free time allocated to take in the regal atmosphere with photos and a stroll at your own pace.
For the afternoon, we will head back towards Riga, only to discover a town filled with a fascinating medieval history of irresistible charm. We will explore the scenic riverbank of Daugava on a panoramic drive past the Presidential residence at Riga Castle. Once in the heart of the town, we will see erected the Freedom Monument facing the National Opera building nestled in between the greenery of the city´s parks. One of the highlights not to miss for a photo stop, is the lovely House of Blackheads on the outskirts of the historic old town.

Thereafter our day comes to an end with a comfortable drive back to the cruise harbor or your hotel.
