Manors

The most remarkable architectural treasures of the history of Lahemaa can be found in Kolga, Palmse, Sagadi, and Vihula. Kolga manor, which belonged to the Stenbock family and is Estonia’s largest, still awaits a skilled restorer to restore it to its former glory. However, in Palmse, Sagadi, and Vihula, the manors are fully restored and waiting for visitors to explore. There, you can enjoy walks in well-maintained gardens and parks, as well as experience unique manor interiors.

The manor complex is located in Lahemaa National Park. The history of the manor dates back 500 years. These days, Sagadi has become the centre of tourism and natural and cultural education. The complex is extraordinary for its unity including lots of outbuildings with repaired roads, parkways, park and ponds. The complex was restored by the forestry system and today it is being managed by foresters, more precisely by RMK. In the Sagadi forest centre, you can visit the forest and manor museum, nature school, hotel and restaurant.

The current buildings of Porkuni manor, which was originally constructed on the site of a fortress, date from the 19th century. The last lord of the manor, Rennenkampff, had a much grander building constructed on the estate between 1870 and 1874, which the locals came to call ‘Porkuni castle’. One corner of the building retains the helmeted hexagonal gate tower of the former fortress, which today houses the Porkuni slate museum. Structures made of slate in the manor complex include the main building, the carriage house, the stables, the granary, the vodka factory and a significant part of the garden wall. The manor today operates as a school and can only be viewed from the outside.

The first written record of Vihula manor in Lahemaa National Park dates back to 1501. At the time it belonged to the Danish baron Hans von Lode. Later, the manor was damaged by a fire during the Great Northern War, after which it was purchased by the Wekebros who bequeathed it to their daughter's family, the von Helffreichs. In 1810, it was purchased by Alexander von Schubert. The manor you see today at Vihula was built during the era of the von Schuberts, between 1820 and 1880. It has since been fully restored and renovated, and now houses a fine restaurant and luxury spa hotel. It hosts concerts, conferences, weddings, and other events. Did you know that visitors are welcome to wander the grounds and admire the views of the manor at their leisure?

For years, the heart of the village of Jäneda has been the manor. The current manor building was built by Johan von Benckendorf in 1913-1915. The history books remember this manor as being connected with Maria Zakrevskaya Benckendorf thanks to her life full of adventure: her ties to the attempted assassination of Lenin, her life with world-renowned writers Maxim Gorky and H. G. Wells. Good to know: the manor can be viewed from the outside every day; groups can book ahead to visit the interior and museum, with tours available in Estonian, Russian, Finnish, German and English.

Here, in the grand Kolga manor, you will experience an atmosphere of mystery and of times past. In 1230, the estate belonged to the Cistercian Order. In 1581, King John III of Sweden gave Kolga and the land around it to the famous Swedish general Pontus De la Gardie. Kolga obtained its current appearance in the 1820s when the previous building was completely rebuilt as a stylish Classicist palace. From the end of the 17th century to the summer of 2014, the manor has belonged to the same noble family, the Stenbocks. Despite the fact that many of its buildings are in ruins, the manor complex still makes a majestic impression.
