Art & culture in the Baltic Sea region’s manors
Aristocratically cool: the new creative spirit behind old walls
If you thought it was all just hotels and history, think again. Today, many manors are places of art and culture
Seagulls and modern art, old glamour and the avant-garde – it’s hard to think where all this comes together as closely and attractively as it does in some of these “Baltic Manors” in the hinterland of the Baltic coast. The vastness of this landscape and the generosity of its historic architecture give you the inner peace you need to enjoy art in a new, more conscious way. If the various collections of painting, sculpture and photography inspire you to give it a try yourself, you can get creative in various workshops. And how about taking a look at history? There are many unexpectedly progressive things to discover in the region’s past – for example, at a cooking event in an original manor kitchen in Denmark that once belonged to a very progressive landowner. And then there’s a Baroque castle in Sweden where a feminist collective pays homage to a very independent 18th century countess.
