A manor history course

With more than 500 years of history, Sagadi manor complex is a shining example of Estonia's manor culture. Today, Sagadi is home to the Forest Museum, the Manor Museum, the Nature School, a hotel and a restaurant. We are located in the beautiful natural environment of Lahemaa National Park along with the most exquisite, restored manor complexes in Estonia including Palmse Manor and Vihula Manor, as well as several small dairy manors, in addition to Sagadi Manor. There are also numerous manor house ruins in the area.

During a three-day course, all those interested in manorial history will be able to learn about the history and architecture of manors as well as the lifestyles of the people who lived in them. Exciting lectures from experts are accompanied by programmes, guided tours and workshops. You will be able to taste manor foods and drinks and try out manor dances and handicrafts. The course also includes an authentic evening party in the manor house.
