The Lohu Manor was established in the 17th century. The second Baroque-style main building, completed in the beginning of 18th century, still remains as a steward house. The current main building was built in the 1780’s and reconstructed to the present appearance in the end of 19th century.
The well-preserved and restored manor is today privately owned.
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.
