Skrunda Manor built in classicism style with design similarities with Mežotne Palace was reconstructed in 2012 according to Eleja Castle design created by the world-famous architect Giaccomo Quarenghi. Today the building serves as home for a hotel, restaurant and conference rooms.
According to the studies of the Latvian writer and historian Arturs Heniņš, Skrunda Manor can be considered as miniature copy of Mežotne Palace and, most credibly, the design of Mežotne Palace of Johann Georg Adam Berlitz was used for its construction. Johann Georg Adam Berlitz (1753 - 1837) was a German architect who designed classicism palaces in Mežotne, Durbe and Kazdanga. In addition, a similarity with the design of Eleja Castle created by the world-famous Italian architect Giaccomo Quarenghi can be noticed both in Mežotne Palace and Skrunda Manor.
Skrunda Manor is located on a high bank of Venta River and it is built in classicism style on the first half of the 19th century. Skrunda Manor has also been referred to as a palace in chronicles and in the lists of real estate of the municipality. The company Anderson Baltic, which purchased the manor in the auction, arranged by Skrunda Municipality in 2006, has invested in reconstruction of Skrunda Manor and it also has implemented the design. The reconstruction procedure lasted five years due to its complexity and labour-intensity. Skrunda Manor received the honourable third prize in the nomination “Reconstruction” of the competition of the Latvian Construction Contractor Association “The Best Construction of the Year in Latvia 2011”. Skrunda Manor is also a member of Association of Latvia’s Castles, Palaces and Manors.
