Vatla manor is first mentioned in the late 16th century. It became the property of Swedish noble family Bielke but was later taken over by the Swedish state through one of the so-called reductions. Later, it again came into the hands of different Baltic German aristocratic families. The current building dates from around 1810, and there are still some rather typical neoclassicist interior details preserved, such as a painted frieze and a tiled stove. Following the land reform that was enacted when Estonia gained its independence in 1919, the manor was transformed into a school.

Vatla küla, Hanila vald , Läänemaa 58.560721, 23.721864‎ 58° 33' 38.60", 23° 43' 18.71" Находящееся с 1807 г. во владении Отто фон Розена здание усадьбы является одним из самых представительных в Западной Эстонии. Интерес представляют зальный триумфальный фриз в серых тонах и спроектированная в виде грота господская спальня, стены которой расписаны мотивами южных растений. На овальном подворье усадьбы находятся амбар и конюшня. Сейчас в господском доме работают Ватлаская основная школа и библиотека. Интересно знать: Согласно легенде, хозяин мызы Ватла поспорил однажды с соседским помещиком, что выстроит себе такой дом, у которого один угол из-за другого не увидишь. И действительно построил, но не за счет его величины, а просто скривив углы дома.

Peace Palace

The Peace Palace (Vredespaleis) is an administrative building and often called the seat of international law because it houses the International Court of Justice (which is the principal judicial body of the United Nations), the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the Hague Academy of International Law, and the extensive Peace Palace Library. In addition to hosting these institutions, the Palace is also a regular venue for special events in international policy and law. The Palace officially opened on 28 August 1913, and was originally built to provide a symbolic home for the Permanent Court of Arbitration, a court created to end war which was created by treaty at the 1899 Hague Peace Conference.
