10 Latvian manor houses straight out of the fairy tale

10 Latvian manor houses straight out of the fairy tale

The history of Latvia has not been easy. Manor houses in the countryside have lost their initial owners a long time ago. Still, many of them have survived, obtained new owners, and look like straight out from the fairy tale book these days. Here is my selection of ten breath-taking Latvian manor houses to include in your future visits to my gorgeous homeland Latvia. The first six are located in the Eastern part of Latvia, while the other four are to the West from Riga. Enjoy!

Melk Abbey, an awesome day trip from Vienna

Melk Abbey, an awesome day trip from Vienna

Melk Abbey is one of the biggest and most beautiful European Baroque ensembles. It is located about 90 kilometres from Vienna and with the help of high speed trains it makes an awesome day trip from Vienna. Melk has played an important role in the Danube region since Roman times when a fortress was built there. The cliff where the abbey now stands was the seat of the Babenberg’s dynasty that ruled Austria from the 10th century to the late 13th century. In the 11th century, Leopold II of Babenberg presented the palace at Melk to Benedictine monks, who turned it into a fortified abbey. Its influence and reputation as a centre of learning and culture was spreading throughout Austria. In the early 18th century Abbot Berthold Dietmayr and his architects Jakob Prandtauer and Joseph Munggenast built a sacred palace upon the foundations of the medieval monastery.
