Jelgava palace | Jelgavas pils



    Jelgava palace is one of most remarkable buildings in Latvia - the largest baroque style palace in Baltic states (and should be the largest palace in Baltics overall). It was built in 1772, by Bartolomeo Rastrelli which has more famous works in Rundale, St Peterburg. As Jelgava palace guide told, Rundāle palace can be placed in the court yard of Jelgava palace, but Jelgava palace can be placed into courtyard of St Petersburg Winter palace (all Rastrelli works). Jelgava palace since 30ies serves as University of Agriculture, so in everyday it is occupied by students.
Jelgavas pils ir viena no nozīmīgākajām ēkām Latvijā - lielākā baroka pils Baltijā (un, šķiet, tai jābūt arī lielākajai pilij Baltijā vispār). Jelgavas pils uzcelta 1772. gadā, arhitekts Bartolomeo Rastrelli, kura kontā arī slavenākās Rundāles pils, Sanktpēterburgas ziemas pils. Kā reiz stāstīja Jelgavas pils gide, šīs trīs pilis ir konsekventi secīgas pēc sava izmēra - Rundāles pili varētu ievietot Jelgavas pils pagalmā, savukārt Jelgavas pili - Sanktpēterburgas Ziemas pils pagalmā. Kopš 30. gadu beigām Jelgavas pils kalpo kā Latvijas Lauksaimniecības universitātes galvenā ēka, ikdienu te veido studentu gaitas.

  1. I think the use of word notorious in this context is inappropriate: "famous or well known, typically for some bad quality or deed.". Excellent photos as usual!

  2. : Perhaps you meant "famous".

    1. I think "remarkable" better describes what I meant because for some reason Jelgava palace are not very famous at all, if we compare, f.e., with Rundāle palace.
