Naukšēni Manor and Park

Steward’s house, horse stable, barn, clock tower or creamery and park are cultural monuments of national importance. A bubbling fountain and small benches for a short rest are situated opposite the steward’s house. Manor park is a home for many trees now rarely encountered like cork trees, Siberian firs, walnut trees, as well as for protected trees like cedar trees, European larches and silver maples.

Farther in the park stands the von Grotte family sepulchre, from which only the ruins have been preserved until today.
During Latvia’s first period of independence manor served as a boys training centre but during the Soviet period – as a vocational secondary school. Now the restored manor and its buildings house the Naukšēni Social Correction Educational Institution.

The manor building itself accommodates Naukšēni People Museum aimed at collecting and preserving information about interesting people that have lived in Naukšēni Parish and provide this information to visitors. Museum displays little dolls dressed in national costumes of 30 different regions created by Marija Muzikante.
