Ungurmuiza Manor complex is a unique ensemble of wooden architecture from the 18th century, centered around the only Baroque-era wooden manor house still standing in Latvia.
Today, the Ungurmuiza complex features a guest house and a museum, making it a perfect place for relaxation and recreation, seminars and private functions. Visitors can enjoy the special atmosphere of the manor house by taking a walk in the park beneath the huge oak-trees, attending an exhibition or concert, or sipping tea in the Tea House.
The main Manor House was constructed in 1732 by Baron von Ungern as a family home, and it remains the only such Baroque-style wooden building from this period in Latvia. The exquisite interior paintings of the building are also finely preserved.
The Ungurmuiza Manor Park also has another unique and rare architectural feature from the 18th century – a park pavilion constructed in 1753. The pavilion is also called the Tea House, and was restored between 1974 and 1978.
A place to relax
The special atmosphere of Ungurmuiza can be enjoyed by anyone. Here it is possible to go on romantic walks, organize celebrations, or just spend quality time with the family.
A tradition at Ungurmuiza is the organization of various cultural events, which gather hundreds who take in the park’s atmosphere outdoors at concerts featuring many of Latvia’s top opera stars.
Meanwhile, the exhibition hall features art exhibitions of local artists, while the historical manor park is a popular place for art plein-airs.
Ungurmuiza also offers guests to spend the night in one of the manor’s two guest rooms, decorated in the Baroque-style, as well as in the old school house next door, which has several guest rooms and three apartments.
Ungurmuiza Restaurant chefs offer visitors scrumptious entrees made from seasonal products. In the summer season, it is possible to book a special tea ritual at the Tea House.
