Purdi Manor

Purdi, Estonia

Purdi manor (Noistfer) has a history that goes back to at least 1560. The current building is a baroque manor house, built in circa 1760-1770 by the von Baranoff family. Some baroque interiors still survive. Additions to the building were made in the 19th century. Several annexes belonging to the estate are still preserved, notably the granary, as well as the baroque burial chapel of the Ungern-Sternberg family, who were the last feudal landlords of the estate.

I recalled my childhood, it was nice to be in a camp and to admit that this manor was done ... a former pioneer camp ...

Quite in central Estonia, near the Anna Church, there is one very interesting manor - Purdi manor. There was a school in Purd for many years, in 2016 the manor got a new and very businesslike owner, who is now renovating it very moderately. In the future, it should become a place for festive events and cultural events.

Church of St Donatus

The Church of St Donatus name refers to Donatus of Zadar, who began construction on this church in the 9th century and ended it on the northeastern part of the Roman forum. It is the largest Pre-Romanesque building in Croatia.

The beginning of the building of the church was placed to the second half of the 8th century, and it is supposed to have been completed in the 9th century. The Zadar bishop and diplomat Donat (8th and 9th centuries) is credited with the building of the church. He led the representations of the Dalmatian cities to Constantinople and Charles the Great, which is why this church bears slight resemblance to Charlemagne"s court chapels, especially the one in Aachen, and also to the Basilica of San Vitale in Ravenna. It belongs to the Pre-Romanesque architectural period.

The circular church, formerly domed, is 27 m high and is characterised by simplicity and technical primitivism.
