Garden Festival 2015

On 27 June 2015 we will celebrate the tenth anniversary of the rose garden in the Rundāle Palace Garden Festival. It will mark exactly ten years since the first work was carried out in the rose garden. These years have demonstrated the professionalism and abilities of the museum specialists of Rundāle Palace, who have been able to adapt the rose plants of other climates to the conditions of Latvia, by nurturing and taking care of each and every plant, so that they can blossom beautifully each summer.
