Photographer's Note

Besides some ~100 castles there are also some 700 manor houses (19th century) in Latvia - some extremely ornate, some - very simple. Yes, our former governors (Baltic Germans) in 19th century managed to live very well... contrary to local "barbars". Now we try to use this historical heritage to our own benefit. Unfortunately major part of these manor houses are in bad shape. Happily at least Dikli manor house and some 40 more manor houses have been renovated recently. Dikli manor house is not especially ornate, but it is hotel now - very pleasant escape in midst of beautiful park. Here you see the main stairway - guests invited ;)
