Stāmerienas Palace
The building of the Stämerien manor began to take shape in the 19th century. In 1802, the Vecgulbene manor became the property of the Baron von Wolff family, from which in 1809, by separating part of the land, the Stämeriens manor was established. The Baron von Wolff family has owned the Stämerien manor for more than a hundred years. The most luxurious buildings of the building - the original construction of the castle can be dated to the 1930s. According to experts, the Stāmerien Palace is one of the most interesting buildings in the eclectic style in Latvian estates. Similar to many other castles in Latvia, in 1905 the Stāmerien Castle was burned down. Soon after, restoration works began, which were completed in 1908.

Padure Manor
Padure manor is the most beautiful building of Classicism architecture in Latvia and that is why it deserves a look. It retains original drawings on its walls, all original doors, windows, eight Classicism stoves, stairs and floors. The surroundings also change depending on the season. These pictures were taken in early spring, when the snow has already melted, but nature hasn't really woken up yet. A reason for an excursion on the Kurzeme side, as well as a good place for various activities!

Kaucminde Manor
The manor house was built around 1780 for Count Peter Ludwig von der Pahlen by Danish-born architect Severin Jensen. A project to attach the manor house to the adjacent buildings was completed in 1912, so the semi-circular complex is also called Kaucminde Palace.
