The Rundāle Palace built during the 16th century was located on the northern side of the pond. It can be seen in the design of F. B. Rastrelli as a small square field with towers in the corners. Rundāle Manor was already created at the end of the 15th century.
Rundale Palace was built in the middle of the 18th century as a summer residence of E. J. Biron – the favorite of Russian Empress Anna Ioannovna. The palace was projected and personally supervised by famous architect Rastrelli (author of Winter palace in Saint Petersburg and The Big palace in Petergof). It is surrounded by the beautiful park with rose garden, fountains, green theatre and maze. In summer here is held “Garden festival”.
