The manor of Rogosi was established around the year 1600 by Stanislaw Rogosinsky probably to the site of medieval vassal stronghold. The present main building was was completed in 1780’s. The square castel-style is unique in Estonia. The outbuildings as well as the gate tower originate from the 19th century (restored in 1999). Today Rogosi hosts a training centre and guesthouse.

Lovely atmosphere. The rooms are a bit disappointing - neither modern and pretty nor true to the age of the building (except one room - Mõisahärra tuba). From the outside it's amazing though.

Very good place to stop for the night and breakfast. Also bigger events can be hosted here, like weddings, funerals, conferences, etc.

Erfurt Synagogue

The Erfurt Synagogue was built c. 1094. It is thought to be the oldest synagogue building still standing in Europe. Thanks to the extensive preservation of the original structure, it has a special place in the history of art and architecture and is among the most impressive and highly rated architectural monuments in Erfurt and Thuringia. The synagogue was constructed during the Middle Ages on the via regia, one of the major European trade routes, at the heart of the historical old quarter very close to the Merchants Bridge and the town hall. Many parts of the structure still remain today, including all four thick outer walls, the Roman­esque gemel window, the Gothic rose window and the entrance to the synagogue room.

After extensive restoration, the building was reopened in 2009. On display in the exhibition rooms is an collection of medieval treasures discovered during archaeological excavations. This includes 3,140 silver coins, 14 silver ingots, approx. 6,000 works of goldsmithery from the 13th and 14th centuries and an intricately worked wedding ring of the period, of which only two others are known to exist anywhere in the world. A mikveh (Jewish bath) has been excavated close by (13th/14th century). The Old Synagogue, the Small Synagogue and two Jewish cemeteries together form a network of historical buildings and sites which vividly portray the role of Jewish life in the history of Erfurt.
