Rundale Palace in Latvia (3)

This is how the Palace is introduced in Wikipedia:

Rundāle Palace , formerly also Ruhenthal and Ruhendahl is one of the two major baroque palaces built for the Dukes of Courland  in what is now Latvia, the other being Jelgava Palace. The palace was built in two periods, from 1736 until 1740 and from 1764 until 1768. It is situated at Pilsrundāle, 12 km west of Bauska.DSC_0202

Once you stepped inside, your eyes are met by this grand palace building.

I like the yellow colour of the walls and the fine details of this Baroque architecture.DSC_0204

Again, you can see the lions perching from above.
