Jelgava Palace (Latvian: Jelgavas pils) or historically Mitau Palace (Latvian: Mītavas pils, German: Schloss Mitau) is the largest Baroque-style palace in the Baltic states. It was built in the 18th century based on the design of Bartolomeo Rastrelli as a residence for the Dukes of Courland in their capital of Mitau (today's Jelgava, Latvia). The Dukes of Courland also had a summer palace by Rastrelli, about 40 kilometers to the southeast, called Rundāle Palace.

  • It’s nice castle but worth a visit only if you plan to do return to Riga from Rundale different way and do small circle.
  • A very pretty building, but it isn’t really a castle, more of a stately home. The building is now part of the university so there isn’t really anything to do or see except walk through the cortyard
