As we walked across the front yard towards the palace, these were the views we saw.
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.
This week’s DP Photo Challenge is Spare.

I will be doing a series on streets and alleys of the Baltic countries.
I have been to all the Baltic capitals which includes visiting of some of the UNESCO Heritage sites like Vilnius, Riga, Tallinn etc.
I am not able to tell you exactly where those alleys and streets are; in my simple mind, they are my memorable parts of the Baltic.
I like the cobblestones, the quaint street, the colored walls on both sides of the alleys, the cafes along or encroached onto the roads, the crude masonry wall facing and last, but not the least, the friendly people.
They leave an undeletable part in my memory!
