Thank You! Latvia has hundreds of beautiful manors outside cities, unfortunately long occupation period made some of them like ruins...

Diolch, Anette S.!

This manor is located on the border between Latvia an Lithuania, other photos.

Formerly this manor house (in nowadays- school)- was famous as at birthplace of one of most educated women in Latvia in 18th century - Elisa von Recke.

Among her friends were Im. Kant, Goethe, Schiller, Wieland, Herder and other European "figures".
