A brief annotation The cornerstone of the Rundāle Palace was laid on 24 May 1736 and originally it was built as a summer residence for Count Ernst Johann von Biron. The palace along with the park designed by F. B. Rastrelli and the largest rose garden of the Baltic States form a sizeable ensemble surrounded by undisturbed nature of the Zemgale Plain. Its ornate rococo interior of great artistic value created by Italian painters Francesco Martini and Carlo Zucci as well as the Berlin sculptor Johann Michael Graff ranks it among the most outstanding European palaces. A European Heritage Site, the Rundāle Palace is a very popular tourism destination in Latvia.
