Udriku estate (Uddrich) was founded in 1642 and belonged to the Baltic German Rehbinder family until the agrarian reforms following Estonia's independence in 1919. The current, neoclassical building is from 1803, and currently houses a nursing home. Some of the original interiors such as painted ceilings and plaster decorations are still preserved.

Udriku , Kadrina, Lääne-Virumaa 59.296187, 26.060700 ‎ 59° 17' 46.27", 26° 3' 38.52" Мыза Удрику была образована в 1642 году, когда произошло её отделение от находящейся по соседству, мызы Полли. С момента образования мызы и вплоть до национализации 1919 года, мыза принадлежала фон Рехбиндертам. Последним владельцем мызы был Хейнрих фон Рехбиндер. Величественный двухэтажный господский дом в стиле эпохи классицизма был построен в 1803 году. Край крыши украшает зубчатый фриз, окна украшают треугольные фронтоны. В центральной части фасада находится портик с треугольным фронтоном и четырьмя ионическими колоннами. Перед портиком сохранились две частично повреждённых чугунных статуи льва. Кроме этого, сохранились некоторые элементы интерьера. Сейчас в здании находится дом престарелых. До наших дней на мызе сохранились некоторые второстепенные постройки, однако, в перестроенном виде. В восточном направлении от центральной части мызы находилась часовня фон Рехбиндеров с колоннадами, напоминавшими античный храм.

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.
