Luznava Manor and park

The manor-house was built between 1905 and 1911 in the style of historicism and Art Noveu from bricks and split boulders. The owner of Luznava Manor was an engineer and university professor S.Kerbedz from St. Petersburg, who also lead the construction works of the Nikolaev Bridge across the Neva River in St Petersburg.

He was the first engineer in Russia to formulate the architonic solution principles of bridges, which were used by bridge constructors during the whole latter half of the 19th century.
Nowadays the castle is managed by Luznava elementary school. Luznava Manor is surrounded by a 23,7 ha landscape park with a pond system, where fish were bred during the time of S.Keberdz. There is a statue of Madonna in the park, created by an Italian artist. It was disfigured and thrown in the pond during WWII and restored in 1991.
