History of Rundāle Palace

A Rundāle kastélyt a Baltikum Versailles-ának is szokták nevezni.

Ernst Johann Biron, aki Anna Ivanovna cárnő kegyence volt, miután megkapta a Kurföld hercege címet, 1736-ban az itáliai Francesco Bartolomeo Rastrellivel - többek között a szentpétervári Téli Palota tervezője - pompás barokk kastély építtetésébe kezdett. A cárnő halálát követően a herceget Szibériába száműzték, ezért az építkezést csak 1764-68 között fejezte be.

A 138 szobás kastélyt 1795-ben Nagy Katalin cárnő kegyeltjének, Valerian Suvalov grófnak ajándékozta, akinek családja 1920-ig birtokolta.

1920-ban állami tulajdonba került, katonai kórháznak, internátusnak, a II. világháború után magtárnak használták.

1972-ben elkezdett helyreállítása napjainkban is folyik.
