Kirna Manor

Kirna, Estonia

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.

Nice place, tulip exhibition, but ticket 10euro, too expensive
Tamar Sekhniashvili (6 months ago)
The place is beautiful and interesting in itself, but right at the entrance you have a feeling that you are ripped off. The waiter in the cafe was extremely rude and prices extremely high. Could be a great place with a better attitude to visitors. No wish to go back.

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!

La Hougue Bie

La Hougue Bie is a Neolithic ritual site which was in use around 3500 BC. Hougue is a Jèrriais/Norman language word meaning a \'mound\' and comes from the Old Norse word haugr. The site consists of 18.6m long passage chamber covered by a 12.2m high mound. The site was first excavated in 1925 by the Société Jersiaise. Fragments of twenty vase supports were found along with the scattered remains of at least eight individuals. Gravegoods, mostly pottery, were also present. At some time in the past, the site had evidently been entered and ransacked.

In Western Europe, it is one of the largest and best preserved passage graves and the most impressive and best preserved monument of Armorican Passage Grave group. Although they are termed \'passage graves\', they were ceremonial sites, whose function was more similar to churches or cathedrals, where burials were incidental.
