The estate was first mentioned in 1466. It has been associated with the Gilsens, von Rosens, von Zoeges, von Benckendorffs, von Krusensterns and von Uexküll-Güldenbandts. The ruins of a vassal castle destroyed during the Livonian War were reconstructed as a stately castle in the 17th to 18th centuries, which received its present form in 1790.

For many years, the manor was the home of a world famous explorer and mariner Adam Johann von Krusentern, who also passed away in Kiltsi. Since the 1920s, the manor houses a school. The building has been thoroughly restored starting in 2000.

the mansion can be rented for celebrating birthdays and weddings, organizing trainings and seminars, and in summer you have the opportunity to visit the mansion.

Одна из самых интересных и впечатляющих мыз в Эстонии. Фавмилтный закон Крузенштерна. Находится в двух километрах от станции Кильтси, можно добраться на автобусе до остановки Вао и пройти пешком 600 метров. Приятный спокойный сад, интересные мостики и умиротворяющий пруд не оставят вас равнодушными! В мызе можно провести своё мероприятие.

Château des Ducs de Bretagne

The Château des ducs de Bretagne (Castle of the Dukes of Brittany) is a large castle located in Nantes. It served as the centre of the historical province of Brittany until its separation in 1941. It was the residence of the Dukes of Brittany between the 13th and 16th centuries, subsequently becoming the Breton residence of the French Monarchy. Today the castle houses the Nantes History Museum.

The restored edifice now includes the new Nantes History Museum, installed in 32 of the castle rooms. The museum presents more than 850 objects of collection with the aid of multimedia devices. The castle and the museum try to offer a modern vision of the heritage by presenting the past, the present and the future of the city. Night-time illuminations at the castle further reinforce the revival of the site. The 500-metre round walk on the fortified ramparts provides views not just of the castle buildings and courtyards but also of the town.
