Laupa estate was established at the beginning of the 17th century. A wooden house was built at the site in 1853-55 by the Taube family but it was burnt down by insurgents during the revolt of 1905.

The current building was designed by Tallinn-based architect Jacques Rosenbaum in 1910 and completed in 1913. The style is an eclectic neo-Baroque architecture with strong Art Nouveau and neo-Rococo influences. The manor is considered to be one of Rosenbaum's most historically faithful buildings. The building is richly decorated with pilasters, half-columns, terraces, balustrades, stucco garlands and rococo sea shells. Some of the decorations were produced in the renowned workshop of sculptor August Volz in Riga. The manor is considered to be one of the most artistically accomplished manor houses in Estonia.

Today Laupa manor houses a school.

Laupa, Türi vald, Järvamaa, 58.761500, 25.372875 ‎58° 45' 41.40", 25° 22' 22.35" Мызу Лаупа основали в 1630 году. Изначально мыза принадлежала семейству фон Ферзенов. С 1849 года мыза находилась во владении фон Таубов. В 1905 году восставшими был подожжён господский дом, Отто фон Таубе пришлось строить новый масштабный представительный господский дом в стиле необарокко. В 1913 году дом был построен, арх. – Джак Розенбаум. Характерными для этого здания являются мансардные крыши, как спереди здания, так и в задней его части, расположены монументальные мансарды, а также гипсовый декор. Такое роскошное здание могло быть построено только при участии семьи Таубов. В 1899 году в Тюри была открыта бумажная фабрика (разрушена в 1941 году). Фабрика приносила хозяину большую прибыли. С 1919 по 1922 годы в национализированном господском доме действует школа. С 1999 по 2000 года господский дом ремонтировался. На мызе сохранились некоторые постройки второстепенной важности, а также большой парк, который расположен по обе стороны реки Пярну.

Lübeck Cathedral

Lübeck Cathedral is a large brick-built Lutheran cathedral in Lübeck, Germany and part of the Lübeck UNESCO World Heritage Site. In 1173 Henry the Lion founded the cathedral to serve the Diocese of Lübeck, after the transfer in 1160 of the bishop's seat from Oldenburg in Holstein under bishop Gerold. The then Romanesque cathedral was completed around 1230, but between 1266 and 1335 it was converted into a Gothic-style building with side-aisles raised to the same height as the main aisle.

On the night of Palm Sunday (28–29 March) 1942 a Royal Air Force bombing raid destroyed a fifth of the town centre. Several bombs fell in the area around the church, causing the eastern vault of the quire to collapse and destroying the altar which dated from 1696. A fire from the neighbouring cathedral museum spread to the truss of the cathedral, and around noon on Palm Sunday the towers collapsed. An Arp Schnitger organ was lost in the flames. Nevertheless, a relatively large portion of the internal fittings was saved, including the cross and almost all of the medieval polyptychs. In 1946 a further collapse, of the gable of the north transept, destroyed the vestibule almost completely.

Reconstruction of the cathedral took several decades, as greater priority was given to the rebuilding of the Marienkirche. Work was completed only in 1982.

The cathedral is unique in that at 105 m, it is shorter than the tallest church in the city. This is the consequence of a power struggle between the church and the guilds.

The 17 m crucifix is the work of the Lübeck artist Bernt Notke. It was commissioned by the bishop of Lübeck, Albert II. Krummendiek, and erected in 1477. The carvings which decorate the rood screen are also by Notke.

Since the war, the famous altar of Hans Memling has been in the medieval collection of the St. Annen Museum, but notable polyptychs remain in the cathedral.

In the funeral chapels of the southern aisle are Baroque-era memorials by the Flemish sculptor Thomas Quellinus.
