After the palace tour, you'll have the opportunity to stroll through the beautiful Baroque Garden of Rundāle Palace, meticulously restored to preserve Rastrelli's original layout. In addition to the enchanting Rundāle Palace experience, our journey includes a visit to Bauska Castle. Enjoy a guided tour of Livonian Order Castle, a 15th-century masterpiece with enduring ruins.
