Estonia is dotted with old manor houses. The other day I went for a drive to see the countryside and visit an old manor that caught my interest.


This is Hõreda Manor, one of many manors that are now abandoned.

The building was finished about in 1810. and was decorated inside with marks and filigranes stucco decorations. After it stood without a roof in 1980s and 1990s, it has been completely ruined. The manor now stands in private ownership.

I originally found this manor on this site, which has many interesting pictures from the back roads of Estonia.  There are more pictures of the Hõreda Manor here, and you can see many more manors here and here.
