Baroque Architecture

  • Elements of the Baroque style are found
    throughout Europe.
  • In Italy, the Baroque style is reflected in
    opulent and dramatic churches with irregular
    shapes and extravagant ornamentation.
  • In France, the highly ornamented Baroque style
    combines with Classical restraint.
  • Russian aristocrats were impressed by Versailles
    in France, and incorporated Baroque ideas in the
    building of St. Petersburg.

Herrenchiemsee - King Ludwig
This is Bavarian King Ludwig's II largest castle.
The king decided to make a replica of
Versailles, but only managed to build the
central portion before funds ran out. What
exists is very impressive, with French gardens,
a big hall of mirrors, and a state room where
classical concerts are held. This palace is
located on an island named "Herreninsel" in
the lovely lake Chiemsee.
