Uuemõisa estate (Neunenhof) is first mentioned in 1539 and then belonged to the Bishopric of Saare-Lääne. During the Swedish time it for a long period of time was a part of the vast domains of the De la Gardie family. The last owner before the Estonian land reform of 1919 was Eugenie Mikhailovna Shakhovskaya, the world's first female fighter pilot. After the Estonian declaration of independence, it was used by the Estonian Ministry of Defence. During the Soviet occupation of Estonia, the Red Army occupied the buildings. The current manor was built in mid 19th-century, with additions made in 1921-1923 by architect Karl Burman.

Seal on perekonnaseisu amet ja ma käisin oma naise surmatunnistuse järel.

Uuemõisa pargis ei ole enam võimalik käija jalutamas eakal inimesel kas üksi või ka lapselapsega. Nimelt vana planeeringuga olid pingid läbi aasta ja oli võimalik puhata jalga. Nüüd kas mine MÕISA bussipeatusesse või külmal Mõisahoone TREPIL. Seda sai ka tehtud. Mis toimub.. Eakad tahetakse juba varakult maha kanda. Tänan.

Sirmione Castle

Sirmione castle was built near the end of the 12th century as part of a defensive network surrounding Verona. The castle was maintained and extended first as part of the Veronese protection against their rivals in Milan and later under the control of the Venetian inland empire. The massive fortress is totally surrounded by water and has an inner porch which houses a Roman and Medieval lapidary. From the drawbridge, a staircase leads to the walkways above the walls, providing a marvellous view of the harbour that once sheltered the Scaliger fleet. The doors were fitted with a variety of locking systems, including a drawbridge for horses, carriages and pedestrians, a metal grate and, more recently, double hinged doors. Venice conquered Sirmione in 1405, immediately adopting provisions to render the fortress even more secure, fortifying its outer walls and widening the harbour.

Thanks to its strategical geographical location as a border outpost, Sirmione became a crucial defence and control garrison for the ruling nobles, retaining this function until the 16th century, when its role was taken up by Peschiera del Garda.
