Kernu estate was established in 1637. The current building owes its stately neoclassical appearance to a thorough renovation executed 1810-1813, possibly by the designs of renowned Helsinki architect Carl Ludvig Engel. The front façade is dominated by a richly decorated portico, while the side facing the park displays a 4-column half rotunda, unique in Estonian architecture. A care home has been operating in the building since the 1920s.

Really nice manor, very well restored, especially the interior of the manor house. The restorant has very tasty food. You can also ask for a manor tour in Estonian, English or German. The manager of the manor is super helpful for any event you plan there...be it a short stay, a wedding or a business seminar. I reccomend a visit, one of the nicest manors to explore

Wonderful property by the lake. You can dine in the old halls, eat dessert on the summer terrace, or just lie in a hammock in the park.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
