The Kirna estate was given as a gift to the von Fersen family in 1614 and remained in the ownership for over a hundred years. After 1787, it belonged to various Baltic German and Russian families from the nobility. After 1919 it was used as a school up until World War II. During the Soviet occupation of Estonia, the manor housed the offices of a collective farm. Today it stands in private ownership and is used for it's energetically propitious place as spa.

The building received its present appearance during a neoclassical reconstruction of an earlier building around 1820. The hall and other ceremonial rooms on the main floor was at that time also decorated with typical stucco ornaments. Some later additions were in a neo-Gothic style. The family cemetery of the von Osten-Sacken family together with the ruins of a funeral chapel reminding one of an antique temple are located near the centre of the estate.

With a friendly staff, gorgeous gardens, an abundance of history, Kirna Mois is a place like no other. With energy channeling benches that are specific to the body and mind, keeping an open mind will bring you to new heights. Try the berry cheesecake and the 5 elements bench! If possible, leave a small donation for the restoration of such a beautiful place for everyone around the world! Now that's what I'm talkin' bout!

An amazing place not far from Türi! I visited it on a special day in spring when tulips blossom. I suggest everyone to see it at least once. There was live music, exhibition and of course a lot of tulips. This place is known as some kind of a place with positive vibes. You'll get some positive energy for sure from this amount of beauty whuch surrounds you. There is also a small cafe where one can have coffee or wine. I tried some bakery and it was beyond delicious. Location: not far from Türi (35 min of walking); if you have a car, it's very convenient.

Really nice and charming cafe with cosy atmosphere. The food, the dessert and the tea was delicious! We had a nice talk with one of the staff members. We also had the chance to visit a concert which took place the same evening and usually is once a month. The garden and the benches are a special experience - feel the energy ;)

Tyniec Abbey

Tyniec Benedictine abbey was founded by King Casimir the Restorer probably around 1044. Casimir decided to rebuild the newly established Kingdom of Poland, after a Pagan rebellion and a disastrous Czech raid of Duke Bretislaus I (1039). The Benedictines, invited to Tyniec by the King, were tasked with restoring order as well as cementing the position of the State and the Church. First Tyniec Abbot was Aaron, who became the Bishop of Kraków. Since there is no conclusive evidence to support the foundation date as 1040, some historians claim that the abbey was founded by Casimir the Restorer’ son, King Boleslaw II the Generous.

In the second half of the 11th century, a complex of Romanesque buildings was completed, consisting of a basilica and the abbey. In the 14th century, it was destroyed in Tatar and Czech raids, and in the 15th century it was rebuilt in Gothic style. Further remodelings took place in the 17th and 18th centuries, first in Baroque, then in Rococo style. The abbey was partly destroyed in the Swedish invasion of Poland, and soon afterwards was rebuilt, with a new library. Further destruction took place during the Bar Confederation, when Polish rebels turned the abbey into their fortress.

In 1816, Austrian authorities liquidated the abbey, and in 1821-1826, it was the seat of the Bishop of Tyniec, Grzegorz Tomasz Ziegler. The monks, however, did not return to the abbey until 1939, and in 1947, remodelling of the neglected complex was initiated. In 1968, the Church of St. Peter and Paul was once again named the seat of the abbot. The church itself consists of a Gothic presbytery and a Baroque main nave. Several altars were created by an 18th-century Italian sculptor Francesco Placidi. The church also has a late Baroque pulpit by Franciszek Jozef Mangoldt.
